A giant American flag drops down over the left field Green Monster at Fenway Park in Boston during a remembrance of 9/11 prior to a game between the Red Sox and the New York Yankees tonight.

Starting the second inning of tonight’s Dodgers-D’backs game in Arizona, Vin Scully captioned the photo of the American flag hanging in center field at Chase Field in Phoenix:

“Eleven years ago today, terrorists shattered a sense of security here in the United States. Generations who did not understand or feel the pain of Pearl Harbor certainly were shocked to realize that they had been attacked on American soil.

“And, of course, as the president said on that fateful day, ‘We shall not falter, we shall not tire, we shall not fail.’ We will constantly and forever remember not just the thousands of people who died on that day, but the hundreds of thousands who protect us every day in this wild and violent world in which we live in.”
