Sports Illustrated Invites Fans to Boston for Cover Shoot

By Matt Blanchette

As the one year anniversary of the tragic bombing at the Boston Marathon approaches, Sports Illustrated is planning to feature the city on its cover again.

SI is inviting people to the corner of Boylston and Dartmouth
Streets in Boston, the site of the finish line, at 7 a.m. on Saturday, April 12, to take part in another cover dedicated to “Boston Strong.” The cover will be for the April 16 issue.

Mayor Marty Walsh and first responders are also going to be there. SI is encouraging people to wear their Boston sports attire.

After the bombings, this now iconic photo, was featured. David Ortiz appeared with first responders after the Red Sox won the World Series.
