Boston Red Sox Pay Tribute to Bombing Victims - Watch Now!

Check out the Boston Red Sox paying tribute to Boston’s first responders and those affected by the Boston Marathon tragedy.

Neil Diamond participated in the ceremony by singing “Sweet Caroline,” which has been played at every Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park since 2002.

The Boston Red Sox played against the Kansas City Royals and this game also marked the return of their star player David Ortiz.

“This jersey that we’re wearing today it doesn’t say ‘Red Sox.’ It says, ‘Boston.’ We want to thank you for you, Mayor Menino, Governor Patrick, the whole police department, for the great job that they did this past week,” David shared. “This is our f–king city. And nobody is going to dictate our freedom. Stay strong.”

As a Bostonian that was not at the game, I think it was amazing Neil Diamond came in to do his song live. The song has become its own thing- I remember when it was just a funny thing to do at some games, now it has become poignant in the last few(?) years. It was a classy thing for him to do.

Was at the game, and was very touched by Neil’s desire to help heal Boston with a personal rendition of his song. I heard he just came and asked if he could do it, completely by surprise. I thought that was an amazing gesture.
