      Boston Marathon survivor Marc Fucarile threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Red Sox traditional Patriots Day game

      Fucarile, who lost his right leg in last year's bombing, walked with a prosthetic and a cane to the mound Monday before the game against the Baltimore Orioles.

      The 35-year-old native of Stoneham, Mass., handed his cane to a companion, wound up and threw to former Red Sox outfielder Kevin Millar.

      The pitch marked a return to Fenway Park for Fucarile, who married his longtime fiancee Jennifer Regan at Fenway last week. The couple had delayed their wedding while Fucarile recovered from serious injuries.
