Red Sox honor Boston marathon runner

BOSTON (WHDH) - The Red Sox honored a man who went into cardiac arrest after running the Boston Marathon, and the doctor who helped save his life.

Guillermo Roman threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Wednesday night’s game.

Roman went into cardiac arrest shortly after crossing the finish line at Boylston Street in 2011.

He’s completed nine marathons and said he looks forward to finishing his tenth in the near future.
