Red Sox Plan For Emotional Return To Fenway; Bruins, NASCAR Teams Also Plan Tributes

LENDING A HAND: The Bruins and Penguins will auction off their game-worn jerseys from Friday night's game to support those affected by the bombings. The Bruins' jerseys will include a blue and yellow "Boston Strong" patch, while the Penguins will wear a "617" patch representing the Boston area code. The Bruins also announced official sweaters will be raffled off at the Panthers-Bruins game on Sunday and the Lightning-Bruins game on April 25 at the Bruins Foundation Table located at Level 4 Loge 4 to support The One Fund Boston (Bruins). Meanwhile, SPEEDTV.com's Mike Hembree notes some NASCAR teams are "stepping up to show support for Boston" in the wake of the bombings. The three Roush Fenway Ford Fusions will "carry 'B-Strong' decals during this weekend’s NASCAR event, and RFR co-owner Jack Roush has pledged to donate $100 for every lap the team leads" during Sunday’s Sprint Cup STP 400 at Kansas Speedway. Team Owner Michael Waltrip "plans to honor the victims ... by running special door numbers on his three Sprint Cup cars at Kansas." The door numbers on the No. 15, 55 and 56 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyotas "will replicate the 2013 Boston Marathon runner 'bib' numbers" (SPEEDTV.com, 4/18).
