Ortiz is back

David Ortiz just got a huge standing ovation, and a “Papi! Papi!” chant as he strode to the plate for his first at bat in nearly two months.

He seemed pretty happy (and possibly relieved) to be back before the game, though he didn’t have much to offer reporters other than, “I’m really, really excited and back. I’ll talk to you after the game.”
