With Boston College in town for an exhibition game Tuesday, the Boston Red Sox took the opportunity to honor former Eagles baseball player Pete Frates.
Every Red Sox and BC Eagle wore Frates’ No. 3 jersey in the spring training matchup at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Fla. Frates, who suffers from ALS, created the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’ to raise awareness and money for ALS research.
Frates was honored in a ceremony before the game, which the Sox won 1-0. Since he created his viral campaign, Frates has helped raise over $100 million to help fight ALS. The campaign still is going strong through the Pete Frates #3 Fund.
Although Frates was unable to make trip to the Sunshine State, his friends and family were there to participate in the ceremony.
