Red Sox Players Show Support on Twitter For Boston Marathon Victims

The Star Ledger

One day later, the tragic events of the 2013 Boston Marathon are still painful to take in as three people have already died with over 140 people injured. The investigation is still under way when it comes to figuring out who was responsible for this horrific tragedy, but once again—the country has come together as one stronger than ever.

Despite everything that took place, you can’t help but love and appreciate all of the support the victims have received from professional athletes across the country—especially the Boston Red Sox. Everybody knows Boston is a sports fan and with the Red Sox in the middle of their first month of regular season play—the city needs their support more than ever during these difficult times.

From messages on gloves to wearing wristbands, numerous professional athletes have already honored victims from Monday’s events and you can count on them continuing to do so over the next couple of weeks. Even Danny Amendola of the New England Patriots has decided to donate $100 from each reception and $200 from each dropped pass to the Boston Marathon Relief Fund for the 2013 season.

Nobody should ever have to experience these types of tragic events, but the best thing everyone can do from here on out is be supportive for one another. Numerous members of the Red Sox were kind enough to show their support to the victims and city of Boston on Twitter shortly after the tragic events took place—so here’s a look at some of the player’s tweets.
