Before the U.S. national anthem was played ahead of the Royals’ game against the Yankees on Tuesday night, there was a tribute to the victims of Monday night’s terrorist attack in Manchester, England.

Twenty-two people died, one as young as 8 years old, when a bomb was detonated at an Ariana Grande concert.

The Yankees played the British national anthem — “God Save The Queen” —before Tuesday’s contest at Yankee Stadium in memory of the victims.
