April 16 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Yankees will play “Sweet Caroline” at the end of the third inning during tonight’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks to show support for Boston, the Yankees said on Twitter.
The team also will have a moment of silence at Yankee Stadium to honor the victims of the bombing at the Boston Marathon yesterday. Three people died and more than 175 people were injured in two explosions at the finish line.
The Boston Red Sox, the Yankees’ biggest rival, traditionally play the Neil Diamond hit at each home game, and fans at Fenway Park sing along.
