Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park before the start of Friday’s game between the Boston Red Sox and the Kansas City Royals.

Raisman, who is from Needham and came home from this summer’s Rio Olympics with three medals, had a moment on the field with Red Sox slugger David Ortiz where she draped her medals around Ortiz’s neck before tossing out the first pitch:
