Breaking News on Boston.com: Red Sox Opening Day

Despite fatal subway explosions in St. Petersburg, government filibusters and NCAA March Madness results, Boston.com’s breaking news updates this week focused most heavily on reporting the Red Socks opening day.

Their coverage, beyond articles reposted from the Boston Globe, included an article breaking down the starting roster line-up and opening day live updates. As far as alternative reporting goes, their live updates included a live stream of tweets from both the Boston Red Socks twitter account, and various fans and residents at the event.

While Boston.com didn’t cover the perhaps more urgent national or international breaking news, because the mission of the site is to inform Boston residents of local news first and foremost, their coverage of the Red Socks opening day was relevant and expected.
