Prior to Sunday night’s match-up on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball, the Red Sox and Orioles were part of a pregame ceremony dedicated to the heroes of last year’s bombing of the Boston Marathon. Victims Krystle Campbell, Martin Richard, Lu Lingzi and officer Sean Collier were honored. The University of Massachusetts marching band and the Boston Pipers Society performed. Additionally, the police departments from Watertown and Boston, as well as the Massachusetts state police were there as well.

The beat writers as well as the teams’ social media accounts provided some moving photos of the ceremony:
