When the parade reached the site of the Boston marathon bombings, Jonny Gomes, an outfielder, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia, a catcher, placed the Red Sox trophy and a jersey reading "Boston Strong" over the marathon finish line.

The action was meant to commemorate the site where two bombs were detonated in April, leaving 3 dead and 200 wounded.

At the finish line, designated hitter David Ortiz climbed off a duck boat to walk across it.

After being named World Series MVP, Ortiz shouted "Boston Strong" to Red Sox fans in Fenway Park.
