Heightened Security For Games At Yankee Stadium, Wrigley Field
Published April 17, 2013
Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline,” which the Red Sox traditionally play during home games, was played on the Yankee Stadium PA system after the third inning. The gesture was in honor of the victims of the bombings. YES’ Michael Kay said, “It’s a nice moment here at the Stadium as we stand united with the people of Boston … We are thinking of our friends to the north” (“D’Backs-Yankees,” YES, 4/16).
Meanwhile, there was "heightened security" at last night's Rangers-Cubs game at Wrigley Field. A bomb-sniffing dog "swept the field before fans arrived, some trash cans were removed from the park and police were out in force" (ABCLOCAL.com, 4/16).
