Red Sox Pay Tribute to Boston Marathon During ‘Rolling Rally’

BOSTON, Mass. (WGGB) — A touching moment Saturday as the Red Sox took a moment to pause and remember the tragic events on April 15.

As the ‘rolling rally’ made its way through Copley Square and down Boylston Street, the caravan of duck boats stopped.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Jonny Gomes then got off one boat with the World Series trophy and two ‘Boston Strong 617′ jerseys in hand.

The trophy was placed directly on the finish line of the Boston Marathon, which was the scene of April’s bombings.

Gomes draped the trophy in one of the jerseys, then Saltalamacchia, Gomes, and others all sang “God Bless America.”

Some fans say that the Sox championship win wasn’t just about baseball, but also about perseverance after the bombings.
