While many athletes and former athletes expressed thoughts, prayers, concerns on Twitter, one former Patriot offensive lineman Joe Andruzzi offered a more direct kind of help:

 

 

Andruzzi was particularly connected to 9/11, as well, as three of his brothers were New York firefighters and the time of those attacks. All of them survived.

Phillies pitcher Ben Revere put Boston in his prayers — and on his glove — prior to Monday's game against the Reds in Cincinnati:

Then Revere used the glove to make one of the young season's best catches:

And Revere wasn't alone in such tributes:

The Boston Bruins were schedule to have a home game against the Ottawa Senators. However, that game has been postponed.

Note: ESPN/SEC have postponed tomorrow's news conference in Atlanta in light of the Boston tragedy

Some athletes are now pledging money to help victims:

Athletes and teams with especially close ties to Boston were among the first to take to Twitter.

 



Note: The Celtics' home game against the Pacers scheduled for Tuesday night was canceled. This tweet was sent out before that announcement.
