Those watching the Red Sox play Boston College in the teams' annual spring training game -- kicking off the exhibition schedule at JetBlue Park, March 3 -- will see an unfamiliar site. The Sox and BC players will both be wearing the same style uniform (just different colors) in honor of former Eagles standout Pete Frates. The uniforms will carry slogan and patch symbolizing Frates' remarkable fundraising effort in the quest to cure the disease he has been stricken with, ALS. After the game, all of the uniforms will be auctioned off, with proceeds going to the battle against ALS. To learn more about "Pete Frates #3 Fund," as well as more about Frates' story, click here.
