Remembering 9/11
Ballparks go silent to honor victims of Sept. 11
For a few brief moments Wednesday, there was no cheering in baseball. There wasn't any booing of the rival team, applauding of a great play or the sounds of vendors working the stands. At each of the five ballparks in use Wednesday afternoon, everyone at the game took time to pause and remember the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001. More >
Around the ballparks:
Blue Jays-Indians
Red Sox-Devil Rays
White Sox-Royals
