On the baseball field, Pete Frates was known for playing with intensity, energy and heart. Five years after captaining Boston College, those same characteristics were on display when in the spring of 2012, he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease, at the age of 27. No longer able to keep his sales job, Eagles coach Mike Gambino hired Frates as the team’s director of baseball operations. In addition to assisting in many phases of the Eagles’ program, Frates has been on a mission to raise awareness and funds for ALS research. He and his family started the Pete Frates #3 Fund, and the "Frate Train" helps to subsidize medical care and expenses not covered by health insurance.
