‘Sweet Caroline’ at Yankee Stadium

Sports

You won’t often find me praising the New York Yankees, but the team’s management did something sweet last night.

The playing of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” is an eighth-inning, 11-year tradition at Boston’s Fenway Park. Whether the Red Sox are winning or losing, fans sway and sing. Last night between the third and fourth innings at Yankee Stadium, New Yorkers showed support for bombed Boston by singing along with the song, as the video below shows.

The Red Sox-Yankees rivalry is one of the biggest in sports, but the Yankee Stadium scoreboard announced, “New York stands with Boston. … Pray for Boston.” In Miami, fans at Marlins Park in the eighth inning also sang “Sweet Caroline.”
