For the third time in 10 years, the Boston Red Sox carried the World Series trophy through their city as thousands of fans lined the streets and the banks of the Charles River.
A poignant moment occurred Saturday when the amphibious "duck boats" stopped at the Boston Marathon finish line, near where two explosions killed three spectators at the race April 15.
Jonny Gomes placed the trophy on the line, and he and Jarrod Saltalamacchia held Red Sox jerseys with the words "BOSTON STRONG" and the number 617, the city's area code. Tenor Ronan Tynan sang "God Bless America."
"That was an emotional moment," Petaluma's Gomes said. "To bring the trophy to the finish line, I don't think that the story was written that way, but I was glad to be a part of it."
