Ben Revere Writes 'Pray For Boston' On Glove Before Phillies-Reds Game (PHOTO, VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Before he took the field on Monday night at Great America Ballpark in Cincinnati, Ohio, Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Ben Revere wrote "Pray For Boston" on a piece of tape and applied it to his glove.

"I think everyone was thinking about it," Revere said of the deadly explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, via the Associated Press. "It hurts to see something like that happen."

In the second inning against the Reds, Revere used that glove to make what what might be the catch of the year (so far). The 24-year-old made an incredible diving grab to rob Todd Frazier of an extra-base hit and an RBI. Later in the game, he made another great catch in the third inning, leaping into the wall to rob Ryan Hanigan of an extra-base hit.

Before the Reds' 4-2 win, the ballpark and sporting events around the nation observed moments of silence to honor the victims in Boston.
