The Red Sox return to play Saturday at Fenway Park in Boston with a day game against the Kansas City Royals, one day after the capture of the second suspect in the bombings at the marathon Monday.
The Red Sox's home uniforms will feature the city's name instead of their nickname across their chests.
The famed Green Monster, Fenway Park's 37-foot-high wall in left field, is emblazoned with the "B Strong" logo that stands for Boston Strong. Players will wear a B Strong patch on the front of their jersey just above their hearts.
The team let the fans know via Twitter before the game about the change in jerseys.

The moment is not lost on the players, who took part in stirring pregame ceremonies to honor the first responders, police, victims and their families before the game Saturday.
“This is a city that will count on us, and I understand that,” outfielder Shane Victorino said. “You might not see smiles on people's faces, but you understand this is a trying time. This is a time for people in the city to embrace themselves and to go out there and be a part of that for this city.”
