So the Boston Red Sox were playing at home Saturday afternoon. Singer Neil Diamond decided to surprise them and called to ask if he could perform his "Sweet Caroline" live, the song that has been a tradition during the eighth inning since 1997.
It was the first game at Fenway Stadium since the Boston Marathon bombings on Monday and was an opportunity to honor victims and First Responders. The place was packed as Neil Diamond and the crowd sang.
To top it off, the Red Sox were down going into the eighth but came back to win the game. Definitely a special moment for all involved.
