Yankees statement: “We stand united” with Boston
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and the families who were affected by the bombings and our respect and admiration go out to the police, medical personnel and first responders who acted so heroically. We stand united with the participants, volunteers, staff and spectators of the Boston Marathon and the people of Boston.
“While we do not comment on safety and security measures at Yankee Stadium, this has always been our top priority and the public can be assured we are working with all levels of law enforcement and our own security personnel to ensure a safe environment.”
To honor those lost and those affected by the recent events in Boston and to pay tribute to the strength and resiliency of the greater Boston community, the Yankees will hold a moment of silence prior to tonight’s game vs. Arizona. In addition, the Yankees will play Fenway favorite “Sweet Caroline” over the PA in between the third and fourth innings.
