Red Sox Post Touching Tribute for Boston Marathon Bombing Anniversary
By Tyler Maher
Saturday marked the 10-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing, when two terrorists killed three people and wounded hundreds more by setting off homemade bombs at the 2013 Boston Marathon.
The Boston Red Sox, who had just finished up a game at Fenway Park before the attack, remembered the attack with a touching social media post on Saturday.

The Red Sox shared the iconic photo of David Ortiz delivering an emotional speech to the crowd at Fenway Park days after the attack, when he declared into the microphone that "This is our (expletive) city."
The post called back to Ortiz's rousing speech with the caption, "Still our city."
The 2013 team banded together after the attack, hanging a jersey with the Boston area code (617) in their dugout all season and frequently taking time to visit victims of the attack in the hospital. They also used the phrase "Boston Strong" as their slogan, ultimately winning the World Series that year after finishing last in their division in 2012.
The Red Sox already have several celebrations planned this year to honor the 2013 team, but it's good to see them remember the terrible day that helped spark their championship season.
