I don’t have much to show from last night’s game itself, but it’s what happened before the game that was most important. Throwing out the ceremonial first pitches last night were two faces of the Boston Marathon bombings.

The first was Jeff Bauman, a Marathon spectator who lost both of his legs in the bombings. The second was Carlos Arredondo, the now recognizable man in the cowboy hat who wheeled Bauman to safety. Both were captured in this memorable photo by Charlie Krupa of the Associated Press.

An emotional pre-game ceremony last night for sure.
