The New York Yankees have paid tribute to victims of the Boston Marathon bombings by playing the Fenway Park favorite "Sweet Caroline" at Yankee Stadium.

The popular sing-along song has been featured at Boston Red Sox home games since 2002.

The Yankees honored their longtime rivals by playing the Neil Diamond hit over the public-address system after the third inning of Tuesday night's game against Arizona. Yankees fans sang along, and some people in the crowd wore Red Sox hats and jerseys.

A ribbon was shown on the scoreboard displaying the insignia of the Red Sox and Yankees and the words: "New York stands with Boston ... Pray for Boston."
