It's not every day you film a movie scene during pregame! Thanks for joining us, Jeff Bauman & Jake Gyllenhaal! pic.twitter.com/UyQ3u2UMwF— Boston Red Sox (@RedSox) April 18, 2016
Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman joined actor Jake Gyllenhaal Monday morning at Fenway Park during filming of a scene for the upcoming movie “Stronger.”
The Boston Red Sox tweeted a video of the pair throwing out the first pitch as the Red Sox took the field against the Blue Jays.
“It’s not every day you film a movie scene during pregame! Thanks for joining us, Jeff Bauman & Jake Gyllenhaal!” the team said.
Gyllenhaal also filmed a scene as Bauman earlier this month at a Boston Bruins game at TD Garden, waving a flag that read “Boston Strong.”
“Stronger” wasn’t the only Marathon bombing movie being filmed in Boston Monday; Mark Wahlberg was spotted at the finish line early this morning filming scenes for “Patriots Day.”Christina Prignano can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow her on Twitter@cprignano.
