Tom Brady congratulates Red Sox on another World Series after missing ceremony


Tom Brady wasn't on hand with 20-plus of his teammates to be part of the pregame ceremony at Fenway Park prior to the Red Sox' home opener, but he still took the time to acknowledge the team winning another World Series.

Brady tweeted: I want to congratulate the @RedSox for dropping ANOTHER Boston banner today. I couldn’t make it but I think a couple Super Bowl Champs were there to help out! @RobGronkowski @Edelman11 @BumpNrunGilm0re

Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski and Stephen Gilmore threw out the ceremonial first pitches.

They were among over 20 players who were present including: Deatrich Wise, Ted Karras, Matthew Slater, Keion Crossen, Brian Hoyer, Derek Rivers, Joe Cardona, Cole Croston, Duron Harmon, Jason McCourty, Obi Melifonwu, Joe Thuney, Ja'Whaun Bentley, Danny Etling, Patrick Chung, Trent Harris, A.J. Howard, Ryan Izzo, Dan Skipper and Ramon Humber.

Brady wasn't the only high profile person missing, as Bill Belichick and Robert Kraft were not present, either.

Belichick and the coaching staff had a pre-draft commitment, while Kraft is out of town.

Three-man rotation: Gronk, Edelman and Gilmore with the first pitch. (via @NESN broadcast).
