Yankees to Play ‘Sweet Caroline’ To Honor Boston
While Neil Diamond’s classic ‘Sweet Caroline’ is a staple in Boston, the rival Yankees usually want nothing to do with that song. Today is a different day in this country, and the New York Yankees are showing such class, and will play that song to honor the victims of Monday’s Boston marathon bombings.
The team announced that it will play ‘Sweet Caroline’ at the end of the third inning in their Tuesday game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. That song will be followed by a moment of silence for the victims.
It is nice to see a country, and two rival cities unite after such a horrible incident.
Our thoughts are with the Boston community. Tonight there will be a special moment of silence & Fenway favorite Sweet Caroline @ end of 3rd.
