Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly reserved some playoff tickets at Boston’s Monday night playoff game against the Cleveland Indians for presidential debate sensation Kenneth Bone.

The Red Sox lost to the Indians in a 4-3 battle, ending their season as well as the legendary career of David Ortiz, who is now officially retired.

Whereas Ortiz is beloved in Boston for his incredible 13-year run with the franchise, Ken Bone became a star overnight following the second presidential debate on Sunday. And Ortiz’ now former teammate, Joe Kelly, is a big fan.

Bone was one of several guests at the town hall debate Sunday night that were chosen to ask the candidates a question. Bone asked the presidential nominees a question about energy policy, and for the brief time he was on-screen, he became an Internet sensation.
