BOSTON (AP) - The victims of the Boston Marathon bombing have been honored with a tribute during Game 2 of the World Series at Fenway Park.
Bombing survivors stood on the field during the seventh inning stretch Thursday night as singer James Taylor led the crowd in ''America the Beautiful.''
Three people were killed and more than 260 wounded in the April 15 bombings near the marathon's finish line.
The Red Sox have repeatedly honored the victims and survivors over the course of the season. Players visited the injured in hospitals and a giant ''B Strong'' logo was cut into the outfield grass.
Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia told reporters before the game that the team has tried to help the city through what he called ''the toughest of times.''
