Big Papi gets a San Francisco cable-car bell

Ortiz with McCovey and a couple of former WS Champion teammates
Another infrequently played at NL park was the latest stop on David Ortiz' farewell tour.  He's only played in San Francisco a few times, starting 6 games since 2004.  But that didn't stop the Giants from having all-time great Willie McCovey (who is currently, but not for long, ahead of Ortiz on the all-time home run list 521 to 519), make a presentation before the start of last night's game. Also on hand were a pair of World Series Champion teammates, Javier Lopez from the 2007 team and Jake Peavy from 2013.

They presented him with a cable-car bell to commemorate his last regular season trip to San Francisco.

Here is video of the ceremony
