You haven’t been to Fenway Park if you haven’t sung Sweet Caroline with the crowd during the bottom of the 8th.  In the first video below, sing with the crowd as they sing Sweet Caroline during the 8th inning of the 7th game of the 2007 ALCS.  After the song, the Red Sox scored 6 runs and advanced to the 2007 World Series.
