After the Red Sox took sole possession of first place in the AL East Wednesday night with a win over the San Diego Padres, the team hit the road for its next series dressed in their jerseys -- well, kind of. The Red Sox travel day was “favorite jersey” themed, and David Ortiz proudly rocked his Patriots gear.
Big Papi posted on Instagram Thursday of the team on bus, trading in its typical red and white look for some variety, like Joe Montana, Steph Curry and, yes, Tom Brady. Front and center, David shows off his New England pride by wearing his custom Patriots Ortiz jersey, complete with a "34."
According to the Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham, Big Papi wasn’t the only one representing the Patriots on their fun and relaxing travel day.
Catcher Ryan Hanigan sported a Gronk jersey, and pitcher Clay Buchholz chose a classic look: The Brady. Pete even spotted a Red Sox staffer in a Tedy Bruschi jersey.
The love for the Patriots on “favorite jersey” day isn’t the first time Boston’s worlds of football and baseball have collided (and it won’t be the last). Gronk threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Fenway in July alongside his Dunkin’ Donuts duet partner, and he rocked his own custom Red Sox jersey.
With David set to retire at the end of this season, maybe we'll be seeing him wear that Patriots gear more often.
