David Ortiz wears Aly Raisman’s gold
The captain of the winning US Olympic gymnastics teams in both London 2012 and Rio 2016, Aly Raisman, was chosen to throw the first pitch in the Boston Red Sox vs. Kansas Royals Game on Sunday, 26 August 2016.
The media had a ball when Aly, in order to be light enough to throw a good pitch, looked around for someone on whom to place her three medals from Rio, including one gold, and chose Dominican David Ortiz.
The gesture made headlines and social media when Ortiz jokingly walked nearly falling over from the weight of the impressive medal haul. The media contrasted Ortiz’s response to that of pitcher Bryce Harper who stood guard with Katie Ledecky’s medals in an earlier game on Friday, 24 August.
