David Ortiz to get name at Gate 34 at Boston's Logan Airport in his honor

Posted by PanamericanWorld on November 07, 2016

Red Sox fans will soon have another memory of recently-retired slugger David Ortiz when traveling out of Boston's Logan Airport.

An employee of JetBlue Airlines announced to Big Papi and a crowd that the airline was naming Gate 34 in Terminal C after him during a private party to honor the star at a restaurant in Boston's Seaport District on Friday night.

"You mean I'm going to have my own gate at the airport?" Ortiz said, holding a microphone on the stage. "You're (messing) with me, aren't you?"

The event was sponsored by JetBlue, MasterCard, Bank of America and Dunkin Donuts and was billed as "an evening dedicated to honoring David Ortiz."

The 40-year-old slugger retired after his 20th season in the majors when Boston was swept in the ALDS by Cleveland last month.
