The Red Sox held a ceremony before Sunday night’s game against the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park to recognize the events surrounding the Boston Marathon last year.
Governor Deval L. Patrick, Mayor Martin J. Walsh of Boston, former mayor Thomas M. Menino, and former Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis were among the participants.
As the University of Massachusetts-Amherst band played “Highland Cathedral” with the assistance of the Massachusetts State Police bagpipes and drums and the Stuart Highlanders, police officers, medical professionals, victims of the bombing, Marathon runners, and Marathon volunteers came onto the field from various entrances.
The group included Carlos Arredondo, Heather Abbott, Jeff Bauman, the Corcoran family, Patrick Downes, Marc Fucarile, and Jessica Kensky. Dick and Rick Hoyt led the group of runners out.
The warning track was ringed with banners expressing support from other states and other teams.
