Theo’s brother finishes before bombs

As more stories come out of Monday’s tragedy at the Boston

Marathon, it seems more people are finding out some of their

friends actually participated in the annual event.

Wrigley Field.

executive vice president Theo Epstein was in a Monday meeting when

he heard about the bombings.

His brother Paul ran the marathon and wasn’t injured.
