Yankees Play ‘Sweet Caroline’ to Honor Boston Marathon Victims

April 17 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Yankees played “Sweet Caroline,” a song traditionally played at the Red Sox’s Fenway Park, after the third inning of their Major League Baseball game last night to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

A moment of silence was observed before the 4-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Yankee Stadium.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and the families who were affected by the bombings and our respect and admiration go out to the police, medical personnel and first responders who acted so heroically,” the Yankees said in a statement.

The Yankees were remembering the three people who were killed and more than 175 who were injured in two bomb explosions near the end of the Boston Marathon two days ago.

Martin Richard, an 8-year-old from Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood, 29-year-old Krystle Campbell of suburban Medford and a Chinese national who was a graduate student at Boston University were killed in the blasts.
