Yankees play "Sweet Caroline" to Honor Victims of Boston Bombing

For as much hate as the yankees organization gets, i thought this was pretty classy...

they also displayed logos of the red sox next to all the yankees logos in and around the stadium. other teams around the league made similar gestures. really cool IMO.

Very classy! As a life long Sox fan, i've always hated the Yanks as our rivals. But was touched by their show of support after the incident in Boston monday. Much respect here.

Very classy indeed. I saw in Chicago, they had a display which named all their sports teams after Boston teams. Chicago Red Sox, Chicago Bruins etc. Some really nice gestures from just about every major sports franchise. The sweet caroline last night in Yankee stadium was great as well. Truely memorable.

The Brewers played the Cheers theme song, fitting enough.

Neil Diamond thanked the Yankees and other baseball teams for their support. Good to see Boston getting all this support!
