Baseball can help nation ,West Texas,Boston, and its injured vistors heal

Start here

This week started honoring the courage of Jackie Robinson and in Boston Paul  Reveere, Shortly after the Sox  Patriots’ Day game two brothers cowardly  bombed the Boston Marathon  injuring many runners spectators and volunteers  killing  8 year old Martin Richard, 29 year old Krystie Cambell, and Lingzi Lu. Many brave folks helped the injured. Some caring folks gave  runner stuck in the chaos a place to shower  and collect themselves. With the city and the nation searching for answer  a plant in the  town of West Texas,  exploded  Wednesday destroying  much of the town and killing  many including a lot of  volunteer firefighters. Coming from a small town  myself this hits home these trained people forgo pay and put their safety  at risk to keep their towns safe.  Meanwhile  the  Red Sox and   Rangers were both on the road  stuggling like their fans to come to grips with what was happening in their  regions. The Red Sox were being showered with love and suport for Boston from the Cleveland fans and fans though out baseball. The first sporting event in  Boston was a Bruins   hockey game where one most moving images of this past week http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TXPgMmzveo took place(everyone should sign it like that)

On Firday those  cowards struck again shooting fatally Sean Collier and wounding other  law enforcement officers the  city was in  lockdown and games were not played  Meanwhile as Boston police captured the  survivng coward the Texas  Rangers did what they could helping  to lift  sprits of those fans  in West by beating  Seattle  Saturday in  Boston the pregame made me cry from saddenes and joy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gadX75KeyIM

As some  fans  may or   may not know  there is a   custom  at   Fenway  Park  for fans to  Sign to recording of Neil Diamond’s  “Sweet  Caroline” in the 8th inning  well Saturday   Sox’s fan welcomed a surprise guest song leader http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAo_kM_z_38

Daniel  Nava hit a three run homer to give the Sox a comeback win symbolic of the week in  Boston.

Listening to some of  the Rangers game   online Saturday night The anouncers asked people wanting to donate to West not to donate items but money and gift cards  Rangers fan’s  and staff  donated $40.000 to  west

Baseball can and will do what is does best  providing a 3 hr escape from the world’s trouble almost daily and helping to connect people around something good
