The baseball rivalry between the Yankees and the Red Sox was put on hold yesterday to honor those affected by the Boston Marathon Bombing. A Yankee fan was spotted in the stands holding a sign that read “Yankee Fans <3 Boston”.

Before the game Yankee stadium honored Boston in a moment of silence followed by the Red Sox theme song “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Young in the end of the 3rd inning.

Neil Diamond responded to the touching tribute on Twitter:


“Thank you NY Yankees for playing 'Sweet Caroline' for the people of Boston. You scored a home run in my heart. With respect, Neil #OneBoston” - @NeilDiamond
