Via The Outside Corner:

Before Tuesday night's Phillies-Red Sox game, the ceremonial first pitches were thrown out by two survivors of the Boston Marthon bombings. Jeff Bauman, who lost both of his legs in the blast and identified the suspects, and Carlos Arredondo, who helped save Bauman's life, were the honorees at Fenway Park. Arredondo wheeled Bauman out to the mound, and the pair each threw strikes to home plate to standing ovations from the crowd as well as the members of the Phillies and Red Sox.

Excuse me, it's getting a little dusty in here.
