Neil Diamond…

…just sang Sweet Caroline.

Well, sort of. He did sing the song, just not live. He was broadcast over the scoreboard in center field during the eighth inning. And, for those who couldn’t see it, that was ownership member Tom Werner waving his arms along to the song in the pre-recorded video.

Apparently Diamond did this to promote a concert that he’s playing Aug. 23 in Fenway Park. The details were just announced.

Also, Jacoby Ellsbury is now in left, and Hideki Okajima is in to relieve Manny Delcarmen.
