David Ortiz at Red Sox pregame ceremony: 'This is our [expletive] city'

On an emotional day at Fenway Park, the Red Sox honored Boston Police officers, unveiled an American flag and honored Boston Marathon volunteers the day after the second suspect in Monday's bombings was taken into custody.

Before Saturday's afternoon game against the Kansas City Royals -- the team's first at home since the attack -- the Sox also played a video tribute to victims and police and unveiled a "B Strong" sign on the Green Monster, while "U-S-A" chants broke out in the crowd.

Red Sox star David Ortiz delivered a strong message after taking the microphone for a pregame speech, announcing to the fans, "This is our [expletive] city."

The game was originally scheduled for Friday night, but was cancelled due to the ongoing manhunt.
