Boston Red Sox Photos: Monday, September 21, 2015 vs. Tampa Bay Rays.

The Red Sox honored David Ortiz yesterday, who returned home to Fenway Park for the first time since hitting his 500th career home run. The slugger was joined by Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, former players Pedro Martinez, Tim Wakefield, and Jason Varitek, and other Red Sox executives and ownership. 

Here are some moments from the ceremony, as well as from an exciting game to follow. After a back and forth battle and several lead changes, shortstop Xander Bogaerts was able to finally seal the win with an eighth inning grand slam, and some great reactions after!

One game down in the last home stand of the 2015 season!

Here are some photos from the last game of a long, busy home stand. David Ortiz continued his hot streak, hitting career home run #498. 

I tried to separate myself from the pack of photographers and move around to shoot from different angles last night. It felt good to be mobile, and it worked out well for the Ortiz home run. 

We’ll see if I’m chasing him around for #500 on the road!
