Must Watch: Neil Diamond Sings Sweet Caroline In 8th Inning, Rallys Sox To Amazing Come From Behind Victory (VIDEO)
Consider it the 8th inning stretch. Neil Diamond, who’s iconic “Sweet Caroline” has been the rallying cry for the Red Sox since 1997, performed the song before the bottom of the inning Saturday during the first game at Fenway since the Boston Marathon bombing. They ended up beating the Royals 4-3 in dramatic fashion.
Earlier, the Red Sox honored victims, marathon volunteers, police, firemen, and America with a moving half hour ceremony before the 1:30 start. Oh, and David Ortiz was tapped to make a speech to the crowd in his first game in uniform this season (coming off a heel injury.) In case you haven’t heard, his choice of words was epic.
To make this anymore special, the Sox were down 2-1 before Diamond’s performance, and scored 3 runs that essentially won the game immediately after on a homerun by the red hot Daniel Nava.
Just as the ball cleared the wall in right center, NESN Red Sox play-by-play announcer Don Orsillo made the memorable call: “Boston, this is for you.”
Definitely a game to remember.
