Red Sox honor Stanley Cup champion Bruins

 

The Boston Red Sox honored the Stanley Cup champion Bruins with a 15-minute on-field ceremony before Sunday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Members of the Bruins, who captured the Cup with a Game 7 win over Vancouver on Wednesday, rode in on four Duck Boats, as they did in a parade through the street of Boston on Saturday. The boats came in from center field and made a circle around the warning track. When they finished the loop, the players got off and – led by captain Zdeno Chara carrying the Cup – walked into the infield, where they took part in a ceremonial first pitch to members of the Red Sox. Chara left the Cup on the pitcher’s rubber during the ceremonial pitch before picking it up and raising it high above his head as the players left the field. – AP
