BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox paid tribute to public address announcer Carl Beane on Thursday, a day after he died after having a heart attack while driving.

The Red Sox went without a PA announcer for their game against Cleveland as part of the tribute.

The American flag in center field flew at half-staff as the Red Sox and Indians stood along the baselines for a moment of silence honoring “The Voice of Fenway Park.”

The Red Sox also showed a series of still photographs, displaying moments from Beane’s career and ending with a shot of him in the booth he occupied since 2003, smiling as he gazed down on the field.

The Commodores’ song “Night Shift” played during the video tribute before the moment of silence.

The ceremony was carried by the television broadcast and shown in the press room at the TD Garden, where Beane also worked as a radio reporter. Members of the Celtics’ media sat silently, along with the fans at Fenway, as audio clips of Beane opening the 2004 and 2007 World Series were played.
