Boston Marathon bombing victim Jeff Bauman and his rescuer, Carlos Arredondo, were honored at Fenway Park Tuesday night.

Bauman, who lost both legs in the blast, threw out a ceremonial first pitch to catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia before the Red Sox game against the Philadelphia Phillies. Arredondo pushed him out to the mound in a wheelchair and threw out a first pitch to Red Sox slugger David Ortiz.

Bauman was captured in a now familiar Associated Press photograph being led from the blast scene in a wheelchair by Arredondo.

The Red Sox say it's the first time since the April 15 attacks that they could be honored together. Before the ceremony, former Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez came over to greet them and sign autographs.
