Red Sox

Emotional 9/11 Tribute

Before Yankees Game

EXCLUSIVE

Famed rivals the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox will set aside their differences tonight before kicking off a 3-game series -- honoring the victims of 9/11 with an emotional tribute before Game 1 at Fenway.

A rep for the Red Sox tells TMZ, the home team has planned a special 9/11 remembrance ceremony that will occur before the game, including a moment of silence.

The rep says families who lost loved ones on 9/11 will be on the field for the ceremony.

The Boston Fire Department will act as color guard for the National Anthem -- performed by the Boston Fire Acapella Quartet (badass) -- and the flag will be presented by reps from the Boston PD, the Boston FD, and the Boston EMT.

Meanwhile, New York's other team (the Mets, in case you forgot) will be wearing special commemorative hats at tonight's game against the Nationals -- honoring the NYPD, FDNY, EMTs, and Port Authority Police Department.

Never forget.

It's hard to believe that it's been 11 years. God bless everyone who was killed on 9-11, everyone who was affected by this, and god bless the men and women of the police, fire, military, medical, and rescue of all branches. They tried to weaken us but it only made us stronger. USA!

Darn right we should remember it and pay our respects to the victims. There is no higher form of respect than properly investigating the crimes. The idea of Muslim terrorists is an unfortunate farce that has been perpetrated upon an manipulated public. The fact of the matter is a bit more disturbing than most can come to grips with.

You got new reporters continuously airing footage of the planes crashing and the buildings smoking.. You think people want to re-live that day every day, every damn year? I understand paying your respects, but to continue to air that footage is just ridiculous.

Does the victim of rape want to re-live her experience every single year? No, so why are these news outlets stuffing this 9/11 stuff down our throats every year?

According to the government Bin Laden did 9/11.. well, isn't he dead? Why are we still showing these despicable clips ? This country needs to move on and move forward. I feel like they intentionally show the 9/11 clips to keep the populace in an emotional bind, trapped within the reality and angst of that tragic day.

Let it go so this country can truly heal its wounds and move forward!

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Very cool and well thought-out. Hats off to all who organized it.

Btw tmz, thanks for the dishonorable Mets mention. If they were in first you all would be on the bandwagon. Creeps.

9/11 could have been avoided if G. Bush had not ignored all the information he was getting early 2001, Bush ignored the warning by the CIA and intelligent groups. Bush could have raised the security alert at airports and other areas and chose not too. He did not believe the CIA, thus the big silence when he was in FL, knowing he had been given a warning in advance.
