The Eagles and Boston Red Sox announced on Wednesday that Fenway Park will host the sixth annual ALS Awareness Game on April 22 in honor of former captain, Pete Frates.
Led by Sean Marshall, Skinner’s Frate Train, a group of BC alumni, attempted to win money for ALS and Pete Frates in The Basketball Tournament.

For just the second time in program history, BC baseball will retire a number—Pete Frates’ No. 3 jersey—in a pregame ceremony on Saturday.
