April 15, 2013 was the beginning of the season. It was Patriots Day in Massachusetts and the Sox game had its traditional 10 AM start, so people could go down Boylston Street and watch the end of the Boston Marathon.
What happened at the finish line would change Eastern Massachusetts forever.
The Red Sox players dedicated the season to the victims. They broke into groups without being asked and visited the injured.
The victory was more than just winning a baseball title. It was a region coming back.
