Red Sox impromptu tribute at marathon finish line

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON -

It's as much a Boston icon as the Olde Town team; the finish line of the Boston Marathon a symbol of redemption for not only the team, but it's faithful followers.

Jonny Gomes and Jarrod Saltalamacchia, with the Commissioner's Trophy in tow, placed it on the spot where terrorists struck in April; showing that a city was shaken, but is still strong.

Red Sox outfielder Jonny Gomes described the experience "the World Series duck boat parade stopped. I don't know how many things it has stopped for, but that was on purpose and I was glad to be a part of it."

An impromptu performance of God Bless America echoed through downtown Boston, with the thousands of fans singing their hearts out remembering those affected by the bombings.

Gomes and Saltalamacchia congratulated by marathon officials on hand, and posing for photos as they stood strong on a spot that will never weaken.
