This is one of the things I love about sports–and most sports fans. They usually get the big things right.
Ever since Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon, several Major League Baseball stadiums have been showing their support by playing Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” leading into the bottom of the eighth inning.
If you didn’t know, that’s been a tradition during every game at Boston’s Fenway Park since 2002.
To the Yankees,the Red Sox hated rival, Neil tweeted, “Thank you NY Yankees for playing ‘Sweet Caroline’ for the people of Boston. You scored a home run in my heart. With respect, Neil”
What do you think, should this become a Busch Stadium staple when the Cardinals return home from their road-trip next week? Count me in,
This is sports and humanity at it’s best…enjoy.
