Baseball Diamond knocks it out the park

It's been a tough week in Boston.

Things are starting to get back to normal, with baseball resuming yesterday evening. There's a tradition at the Red Sox of singing Sweet Caroline, and as a gesture of solidarity their rival teams had been singing the song as well this week. Last night, Neil Diamond turned up in Boston to join in:

Diamond’s rep tells The Hollywood Reporter as soon as the singer heard the Red Sox game was going to happen, he felt a need to be there. He took a red-eye flight with his wife, Katie McNeil, from Los Angeles to Boston and made his way to Fenway directly from the airport in time for the game's opening ceremony.

"I was humbled and honored to be in Boston and to be able to personally thank and express my gratitude to the first responders and law enforcement officers,” Diamond said through his rep,
A lovely, warm gesture at the end of a cold, hard week.
