“It’s important to recognize everyone that was involved,” Yankees’ manager Joe Girardi said. “When you think about that being a song that is a tradition there, it’s special to Fenway Park and the people of Boston, but we are behind them and put the baseball teams aside.” – nypost

“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,” it read. “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.” – nypost
