Family and Friends pay respect to 'Lima Time'

Family and friends pay respect to Jose Lima yesterday.


On Friday afternoon, tears and hugs filled the room as family members and friends -- including Boston's David Ortiz, Robinson Cano and Tony Peña of the New York Yankees and artists Sergio Vargas and Shino Aguakate -- paid respect to Lima at the Coppola-Migliore funeral home. The wake was just blocks away from Citi Field, home of the Mets, the last team Lima pitched for in the majors, in 2006.
