The Yankees set aside their rivalry with the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday, first putting a sign on Yankee Stadium with both teams' logos and a unity message, and later playing "Sweet Caroline," the Fenway Park anthem, during their game.

The gestures were a tribute to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings on Monday.

The move won the approval of fans across the nation, including the song's writer, Neil Diamond.

Many Major League Baseball teams followed suit, including the Cubs, A's, Braves, and Marlins. The Indians, who hosted the Red Sox, also played the song.
