UMass honors Boston Marathon bombing victims with jerseys for Spring Game


On Saturday morning, the UMass Minutemen unveiled the classiest gesture I have seen thus far to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings and the shooting at MIT.  The nameplates of the jerseys have Martin Richard, Lingzi Lu, Krystle Campbell and Sean Collier’s names on them, plus another one that has the hashtag “#BostonStrong” on it.

They already had an idea to have people who ran in the Boston Marathon cross a finish line at halftime of their Spring Game, but that pales in comparison to this touching gesture.
