What happened at the Boston Marathon was a true disaster. We shouldn’t try to come up with any quick answers. Instead, we should quickly come to the aid of the people of Boston. As many people in my school know, I am a Boston Red Sox fan, and I stay up to date with what is going on with my favorite sports team. I was very fascinated to find these two pictures online which each made their way to Twitter. A couple of days after the Red Sox are playing the Cleveland Indians, and this note left in the Red Sox dugout shows us that the opposing team care about what is going on. We can only imagine what these players are thinking about as they take the field, and eventually, when they return to Fenway Park.
In addition to this, the Yankees have their logo and the Red Sox logo at the front of the stadium with the words, “United We Stand.” In the 8th inning, Sweet Caroline was heard throughout Yankee Stadium which is always played at Fenway Park during the 8th inning.
Baseball teams play against each other with the goal of beating the other team. However, some games go beyond the meaning of winning and losing. Some games are about having an impact on the community of players and citizens of Boston. As MLB put it, last night, we were all Bostonians–and we will continue to be as we remember what happened on that day.
