Feel Good News of the Week: Boston Bombing Survivor, Jeff Bauman Throws First Pitch At Red Sox Game with Hero Carlos Arredondo

After the tragedy that happened at the Boston Marathon, it is great to see those who were hurt healing. Jeff Bauman is a survivor of bombings, and is probably the most well-known from the picture of him being aided by the man in the cowboy hat, Carlos Arredondo.

They were honored by the Red Sox at a game against the Philadelphia Phillies, and were each given the chance to throw the ceremonial first pitch. Due to Bauman losing both his legs in the bombing, he was helped to the mound by Arredondo. He wore his signature cowboy hat and then tossed his ceremonial offering to David Ortiz.

Both were honored at by the Boston Bruins as well. Bauman was at TD Garden to serve as banner captain before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals and Arredondo did the same before Game 5.
