CSNNE: Red Sox react to emotional day at Fenway
It was a very emotional day and it was done well by the organization and everyone who was involved. The book isn't closed on this situation and there is still a lot to be done with the investigation. For now, it is a victory for the city of Boston and the mood at Fenway park expressed just that.
