Prior to the Boston Red Sox taking on the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field Tuesday night, both teams honored to the victims of last year’s Boston Marathon attack.
Included as part of the tribute…a video montage of the day’s tragic events, a moment of silence and the White Sox players and coaches decked out in “Boston Strong” t-shirts.

“I think it’s critical that we never forget the victims that have fallen,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said before the game. “I think we’re all proud to be part of the healing process, how small it might have been, and (it) makes us further proud to be part of an incredible city, a very strong community that I think became even stronger when we unified in response to it.”
Say what you want, but seeing the White Sox recognizing the bombing victims in such a fashion is pretty cool. Really, a classy, classy move…much better than the “Chicago Stronger” shirts that hit the market nearly a year ago when the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks took on the Boston Bruins.
Let’s hope those never see the light of day again.
