Blue Jays remember victims of 9/11 attacks
TORONTO -- The Blue Jays paid tribute to the 11th anniversary of the horrific Sept. 11 attacks with a ceremony prior to Tuesday night's game against the Mariners.

A moment of silence was observed at Rogers Centre prior to the start of the game to honor the lives that were lost in New York City, Pennsylvania and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.

The ceremonial first pitch was then thrown out by acting division commander Len Stadler of the Toronto Fire Services, while the national anthems were sung by Damien Walsh, who is also with the TFS.

In addition to the pregame ceremony, the Blue Jays wore special ballcaps which had badges with both the Canadian and United States flags. This was part of a series of commemorations that were taking place across the Major Leagues to remember the Sept. 11 tragedy.
