SF Giants Honour Boston With B Strong Patch

Written By:  •  Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Last night, for their game against the Boston Red Sox, the San Francisco Giants took to the field wearing “B Strong” patches, the same the Red Sox have worn since late April, in memory of those affected by the Boston Marathon Bombing earlier this year.

Bombing victim Aaron Hern, from nearby Martinez, California threw out the ceremonial first pitch and a moment of silence was also observed pre-game.

The Giants join the Kansas City Royals (B Strong Patch – April 20) and Cleveland Indians (Memorial Armband – April 16) as non-Boston teams who have paid tribute to the victims of the attack via an on-jersey patch this season.

The Kansas City Royals also wore the B Strong patch for the first game played in Boston after the attacks – April 20, 2013

Cleveland wore a memorial armband (an actual armband, not a patch resembling one), for the first Red Sox game played afterwards – April 16, 2013

    This is great that teams are doing this for the victims. A horrible tragedy, its great that teams are paying their respects for those victims.
