An a cappella group at Tufts University, with help from a professor, has created a song and video to help cheer the Boston Red Sox on as the hometown team closes in on capturing a World Series title.
Emma Wise, president of the Jackson Jills group, said Tufts professor, Nancy Levy-Konesky, came up with the idea for the song and video with her partner, Robert Geist, and approached the group to see if they would perform the melody.
“Sometimes you just have to pull an all-nighter in the middle of midterm season to support your favorite team. Go Sox!! #BostonStrong,” said the Facebook post, which appeared last week, several hours before the start of Game 2 of the series.
The Jackson Jills website says the group was founded in 1963, making it Tufts’ oldest all-female a cappella group.
