BOSTON (AP) -- David Ortiz wants to visit the Boston Marathon finish line Monday after the Red Sox are done with their Patriots' Day game against Baltimore.

Just over a year ago, two bombs went off near the finish line, less than a mile from Fenway Park, about an hour after the Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays. Three people were killed and more than 260 injured.

''After the game, we used to stick around and go down Boylston (Street),'' Ortiz said Friday. ''I'm going to pick out a spot where I can see things, or whatever, because I love to go down there.''

Boston plays the Orioles on Monday in its traditional 11 a.m. Patriots' Day start.
