Video: Edes on Boston scene
April, 15, 2013
Gordon Edes joins Baseball Tonight to talk about the explosions at the Boston Marathon and give some background on the significance of Patriots Day in Boston.
He calls the combination of the daytime Red Sox game and the Boston Marathon "a sports festival unique to this area."
Edes, who covered the 11 a.m. Red Sox-Rays game for ESPNBoston.com at Fenway Park on Monday, noted that after enjoying a Sox win, many fans likely "walked down to Kenmore Square ... walked down to Copley Square, which is where the bombs went off about 50 minutes after the Red Sox game ended."
