Frates Family Launches ‘Band Together to Strike Out ALS’ | College Baseball Insider: "Baseball programs in the Atlantic Coast Conference have committed to wearing the wristbands that read “Strike Out ALS” and feature Frates’ initials and number (PF3) during the final weekend of the ACC season (May 19-21). In addition, the Boston Red Sox will join Boston College in wearing the wristbands when the teams play an exhibition on Feb. 29, and Major League Baseball also is supporting the cause.
“While we’ve been overwhelmed and humbled by the tremendous support through the Ice Bucket Challenge, Pete was a college baseball player first and foremost,” said John Frates, Pete’s father. “Our hope is that college baseball teams around the country will join one of their own in striking out this dreadful disease."
