The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

Boston Red Sox Playoff Tribute to Boston Marathon Bombing Victims

The Boston Red Sox paid tribute to the tragic victims of the Boston Marathon bombing today before their ALDS Playoff game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The outfield grass was cut in centerfield to a giant circle with a massive ‘B’ with ‘Strong’ underneath it.

‘Boston Strong’ became the theme in the days after the attacks to raise money and hope for those that were injured, killed, hurt in the attack and their families.

Jeff Buckley’s ‘Hallelujah’ played over the PA system to the crowd as a moment of silence was held for all those that lost life or were injured during the bombing attack that took place back in April.

It was a beautiful and touching tribute that reminded us of how sports can be used to heal and bring us together as a collective group when tragedy happens or the world gets turned upside down.

Well done, Boston!

#BOSTONSTRONG
