Sweet Caroline...Bum Bum Bummmm

by Neil Diamond

If you go to a Red Sox game, then you are required – and we do mean required – to sing this song. So how did a song about Caroline Kennedy become the anthem of the Red Sox? The story goes that it became part of the mix in 1997 when a Red Sox staff member had a daughter named, you guessed it, Caroline. From then, it just naturally made it’s way into the playlis when the Sox were winning. But in 2002 Charles Steinberg, the Executive VP of the Red Sox thought it would be a good way to boost spirits no matter what the score. Since then, it has been played at every home game for the Red Sox.  And it makes all Bostonians feel So good! So good! So good!
