Anaheim is the latest stop on the David Oritz retirement tour, and the Angels presented him with a gift in very Big Papi fashion before the Red Sox-Angels game on Thursday night at Angel Stadium.

Mike Trout and a few other Angels wore huge gold chains and sunglasses in honor of Ortiz, before presenting him with a very cool “Big Papi” portrait. Albert Pujols also lifted Ortiz off the ground for a big huge.

Check out videos and photos of the scene:

As for the game, Ortiz went 1-for-2 with two walks, but the Red Sox lost the game on a brutal throwing error by first baseman Hanley Ramirez.
