WATCH: A Very Special Guest Leads Red Sox Fans In ‘Sweet Caroline’ Sing-A-Long
Today’s 4-3 Red Sox victory over the Kansas City Royals saw its fair share of indelible moments, from the moving version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” sung in unison by the fans, to “Big Papi” David Ortiz‘s defiantly dropped “f-bomb” during his pregame speech to the crowd. But those weren’t all the surprises the Red Sox had in store for the packed Fenway Park on the first home game since Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings.
That’s right, the man himself, Neil Diamond was on-hand to lead the crowd in his classic song “Sweet Caroline” during the middle of eighth inning. The sing-a-long has been as Fenway tradition for years, with fans dutifully singing “bah, bah, bah!” after the title refrain in the chorus, but typically the ballpark uses the original recording. This was just one more special treat for a city that has had one hell of a week.
