Tribute to Boston victims at Giants-Brewers game

MILWAUKEE -- Miller Park paid a musical tribute on Tuesday to victims of the Boston Marathon bombing the day before.

After the bottom of the third inning, those in attendance sang along to the theme song from the Boston-based sitcom "Cheers." A message on the scoreboard read, "To our friends in Boston, our thoughts are with you tonight."

The Brewers and Giants also observed a moment of silence before the game to honor those lost and affected.

All around Major League Baseball, teams made similar shows of solidarity. At many stadiums, including Yankee Stadium and Wrigley Field, teams played Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline," replicating the daily tradition at Fenway Park.
