The Red Sox are back in business as some heavy hitters arrived in Florida on Monday. 

David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia reported to training camp in Fort Myers. 

The full squad is expected to begin practicing together later this week. 

The most anticipated victory lap around major league ballparks for the 2016 season got underway Monday. 

David Ortiz took the first steps of his farewell tour at "Fenway South" for the final spring training of an illustrious career. 

Big Papi, who said he is retiring at the end of the season, had plenty of love for staff members outside the complex, and even more in store for a formal rival-turned-teammate inside the clubhouse. 

Ortiz hugged it out with David Price as both shared the utmost respect for each other and a goal of ending the season with a World Series ring.
