The Red Sox might be on a highway this weekend, though there will still be ball during Fenway Park.
The Boston College Eagles will be holding on a Wolfpack of North Carolina State Saturday in a annual ALS Awareness Game.
The diversion is a sixth time a BC ball group has finished this to assistance and respect former actor Pete Frates, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2013. The group late Frates’ series 3 during final year’s game.
The normal diversion started weeks after Frates was diagnosed. “6 years later, we’re here during Fenway Park and we got a few thousand fans here, and they’re all entertaining on BC and Pete especially,” Andrews Frates, Pete’s brother, said.
Proceeds from a diversion will advantage a Pete Frates Fund.
“They’re finding new genes that they’ve seen are going to lead to a heal during some point,” Andrew Frates said. “It’s a new path. It’s a new avenue. It’s not a cure, or a diagnosis only yet, though a review has altered from ‘if ALS will be cured’ to ‘when ALS will be cured.'”
