The capture of Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was celebrated around baseball tonight.

The news was announced at ballparks across Major League Baseball and greeted with loud cheers. Several Red Sox players posted comments on Twitter congratulating law enforcement personnel.

The Sox face the Royals at 1:10 p.m on Saturday at what is sure to be an emotional Fenway Park.

There is no word yet on whether there will be a doubleheader on Sunday. We will keep you posted.

Just an idea: How about a Duck Boat parade for the cops, medical personnel, first responders and other involved in this drama? Those are the real heroes.

UPDATE, 10:35 p.m.: The Red Sox will play one game on Saturday. The team is hoping for a doubleheader on Sunday but would first need approval of MLB and the MLB Players Association.
