Big Papi Farewell - Cigars from the South Side

Chris Sale presenting Ortiz with humidor full of cigars
Unlike the NL parks that started his farewell tour, Big Papi is familiar with US Cellular Field,  having played 67 regular season games there throughout his career.  He also played 2 postseason games there, getting 3 hits including 2 doubles, during the 2005 ALDS.

Yesterday he was the difference in the game with a 2 run home run in the 5th inning which gave the Red Sox a 3-2 lead, and then he added an RBI single in the 7th in a game Boston won 5-2.

In spite of that, the White Sox still honored him prior to his final game here, as they presented him with a humidor full of cigars.  Of course.... they weren't Cubans but Dominicans!

Here you can see video of the presentation
