NEW YORK -- For a rival slugger who gained fame by tormenting the New York Yankees for most of his career, David Ortiz was made to feel at home on his final day as a visiting player in the Big Apple.By day, Ortiz said he walked around Manhattan with his family, taking pictures and signing autographs for respectful fans who recognized him. And by night, he was given a pair of thoughtful parting gifts by the Yankees and sent off to a standing ovation after drawing a walk and being lifted for a pinch runner in the fourth inning of the Boston Red Soxs 5-1 loss.Impressive, man. There were no boos out there, Ortiz said. It seems like everybody was happy that Im leaving.Ortiz, whose wife, daughter and son participated in the pregame ceremony, achieved villain status in New York after helping to lead the Red Sox to an epic comeback in the 2004 American League Championship Series. He finished his career with 53 home runs against the Yankees, 52 as a member of the Red Sox.But as Ortiz walked onto the field at Yankee Stadium shortly before 7 p.m., public address announcer Paul Olden provided the keynote for the evening by saying, Tonight, the Yankees would like to put the rivalry aside for a few minutes and honor David Ortiz.In a simple, dignified pregame ceremony, they did exactly that. The Yankees gave Ortiz a leather-bound book filled with handwritten personal notes from past and present Yankees players, a gesture that Ortiz said blew my mind. Then, legendary Yankees closer Mariano Rivera, whom Ortiz refers to as one of my idols, presented an oil painting of Ortiz tipping his cap at home plate in Yankee Stadium.Ortiz called it a very professional and very nice ceremony. Red Sox manager John Farrell described it as the most meaningful tribute that Ortiz received during his 18-city farewell tour, a sentiment with which center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. agreed.You could really tell they put a lot of thought into that, Bradley said. I mean this in the most respectful way: It might not have been the most expensive gift hes gotten, but I felt like it meant the most. From my standpoint, there couldnt have been a more special gift than that. All those people that was in that book, and we only saw a few of the pages, I can only imagine.Several Red Sox regulars, including MVP candidate Mookie Betts, rested Thursday night after celebrating the AL East title one night earlier. But Farrell said Ortiz felt an obligation to play in his final game at Yankee Stadium.Ortiz walked to the plate to a standing ovation in the second inning and struck out in his first at-bat against longtime Yankees rival CC Sabathia. He walked in the fourth inning before leaving the game to another rousing ovation.I dont remember seeing it happen here, Ortiz said of a visiting player receiving such adoration.

Wholesale Rockies Jerseys .ca NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche. Custom Colorado Rockies Jerseys . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . Throughout the Tour de France, Australian professional cyclist Richie Porte will be checking in. Here is his latest entry, as told to ESPN contributor Rupert Guinness:Stage six: Arpajon-sur-Cère to Montauban, 190.5kmAs we head into the Pyrenees in the Tour de France on Friday, with my teammate Greg Van Avermaet in the yellow jersey, a lot of people will be wondering if he will keep it or not.Until we find out, what I can say is that Greg really enjoyed his day in yellow on Thursday during the 190.5km sixth stage to Montauban, where Mark Cavendish won for the third time in this Tour. Greg had a big smile all day. So he should. He deserved it.My feeling, though, is that Greg will get more time in yellow. The seventh stage from LIsle Jourdain to Lac de Payolle will not be easy by any chance -- especially with the first=category Col dAspin near the end -- but with a five-minute overall lead Greg should defend the jersey.It depends on how the stage pans out, of course, and how he feels; but if Greg can ride well up the mountain he will have the decent from the Aspins summit to make up any time.How the race among the overall contenders unfolds, I will find out as everyone else does.Will the GC [general classification] guys go for it?Someone is always going to make it hard on the Col dAspin. It is just where they do. Im not sure. Were not going to cruise up there. That is certain. But it is still a tricky one to make a call on really because there are really hard days coming up in the Pyrenees on Saturday and Sunday -- especially on Sunday to Andorra, one of the five keyy stages we denoted before the Tour that were likely to decide the race winner.ddddddddddddThe most important thing for Friday is to be attentive, alert and dont get caught out.Its been a long first six days: We have already raced 1238.5 kilometres in six stages. Then add the heat that has now struck us as the Tour has entered the south of France.The shift in weather can affect riders. And for that, it can give you a false idea of where a rider may be at; well, that is if you see them have a bad day because it may be temporary.What I do know is that I am feeling good, even though I have to admit that Thursdays sixth stage was a good one to get through with the nature of the sprint finish, or lead up to it.It was quite a nasty or dangerous finish. It was a messy sprint. I was kind up there at the start of it and then I was in the middle, but when you are a GC rider and drop back in a bunch sprint, you cant help but fear who is coming up from behind you and coming back from in front.All those lead-out guys come back and split the bunch up as well; it is a really hectic time.Im kind of happy that on Friday I will be back in my terrain in the Pyrenees on Friday.I think I can still make a good shake of this Tour. I am in good nick. It is just about keeping it together now. I cant undo whats happened with my early time loss, but I can still try to do a lot in the days to come. As much as we have raced so far, there is still a long way to go. ' ' '
