By Matt Noonan
After winning a pair of team championships (men’s lacrosse and softball), along with an individual Outdoor Track & Field Championship title in the 800m (Mitchell Black), the Tufts University Jumbos were honored last night by the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
The Red Sox, who played a double-header against the Minnesota Twins, celebrated the Jumbos’ successful spring season prior to the start of the second game as members of each squad posed for a photo in front of home plate.
“We are very proud to have another university from New England win more NCAA championships this year and we congratulate both the athletes and coaches,” the Red Sox wrote in their invitation, which was seen on the Tufts Athletics website.
Below are tweets and photos from last night’s celebration.
