Brewers Sing 'Cheers' Theme Song To Honor Boston (VIDEO)

While several MLB teams played Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" to show support for Boston, the Milwaukee Brewers played another familiar song show support in the aftermath of the tragic bombings that took place near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday.

Miller Park played the theme song to the 1980s sitcom "Cheers" -- which famously took place in Boston -- called "Where Everybody Knows Your Name" on Tuesday. With the song came a message from Milwaukee: "To our friends in Boston, our thoughts are with you tonight."

The New York Yankees honored Boston through song, playing "Sweet Caroline" after the third inning of their game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday. Diamond's hit has been played in the eighth inning of every Red Sox home game since 2002.

Several other teams including the Dodgers, Braves, Cubs and Athletics also played "Sweet Caroline," according to pennlive.com.
