Ben Revere is getting so much attention for his glove - the way he used it and the message he taped to it - that he can't keep up with the calls.

Revere stuck a strip of white athletic tape to the back of his glove on Monday night, showing support for those wounded or killed in the Boston marathon bombings. He wrote the message, "PRAY For Boston" on the tape with a black marker.

Revere then made a diving, over-the-shoulder catch at the edge of the warning track during a 4-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds, an astounding play that filled his phone's voice mail with messages of congratulations.

He left the tape on his glove for the second game of a series against the Reds on Tuesday night.
