In a classy gesture before their game on Tuesday night the Chicago White Sox wore “Boston Strong” T-Shirts as they began their three-series against the Boston Red Sox at US Cellular Field.
Tuesday was the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings.
In an USA Today article by the Associated Press, Red Sox manager John Ferrell said before Tuesday’s game:
"“I think it’s critical that we never forget the victims that have fallen,” 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.”"

It was a classy move by the White Sox and I hope everyone in Boston continues to recover from that horrific event.
With this year’s Boston Marathon nearing, my hope this year is the biggest and safest Boston Marathon ever.
Let’s hope everyone continues to be “Boston Strong.”
