"It was Caroline Kennedy.

There is an historical connection to her selection.

Her great grandfather is Honey Fitz, the Boston mayor who threw out the official first pitch at Fenway on April 20, 1912.

She’s also the “Caroline” in the Fenway anthem “Sweet Caroline,” according to Neil Diamond.

Kennedy was joined by Mayor Tom Menino and the grandson of Mayor Honey Fitz in the ceremony.

They threw baseballs to Hall of Famers Jim Rice, Carlton Fisk and Carl Yastrzemski."
