The Chicago White Sox have paid tribute to victims of the Boston Marathon bombing before their game against the Red Sox.

The White Sox played a video montage and held a moment of silence as both teams lined up outside their dugouts Tuesday night to mark the one-year anniversary of the tragedy. White Sox players and coaches wore T-shirts with the Boston Strong logo that the Red Sox often donned last year.

Red Sox manager John Farrell says hopefully this is ”another day of healing for everyone involved, particularly the [families] of the victims.”

”I think it’s critical that we never forget the victims that have fallen,” Farrell said before the game. ”I think we’re all proud to be part of the healing process, how small it might have been, and (it) makes us further proud to be part of an incredible city, a very strong community that I think became even stronger when we unified in response to it.”
