Yankees, Red Sox to honor Newtown
Question of the Day
TAMPA, FLA. (AP) - The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will honor the community of Newtown and the memory of those killed in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School when the teams play opening day April 1 at Yankee Stadium.
Pregame ceremonies include a joint honor guard of Newtown police and firefighters, and a moment of silence at which time a list of the victims’ names will be recognized on the center-field scoreboard.
“On opening day, we will reflect upon more important things and the play the game to honor the community of Newtown,” Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said in a statement. “Since the day of the tragedy, our hearts and thoughts have been with those who were affected.”
“Months have passed, yet we are still trying to come to grips with this incomprehensible tragedy,” Red Sox principal owner John Henry said in a statement. “As our teams look to face each other on opening day, we will stand united in support of the families affected as we remember and honor those who were lost.”
Approximately 3,000 people from Newtown will be invited to the ballpark for New York’s July 7th game against Baltimore on “Newtown Day at Yankee Stadium.”
