Boston Marathon Bombing Heroes Threw Out The First Pitch For The Red Sox

Bauman is the Boston Marathon bombing victim that lost both of his legs and later identified one of the bombers for authorities shortly after regaining consciousness in the hospital. Arredondo was the cowboy hat-wearing hero that helped Bauman into a wheelchair and was famously photographed pushing him to safety.
