Daily links for Boston College fans. August 15, 2012.
The Pete Frates story now is one that many of you Eagle fans are somewhat familiar with since the Strike Out ALS campaign got a lot of support this baseball season through the team's twitter account, BCEagles.com and many other outlets. Pete is fighting ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, and his story is best told through his fundraisering website.
The Boston College baseball team fell to Virginia Tech, 8-4, on Friday night at English Field on ALS Awareness Night as the Eagles (13-17, 4-9 ACC) and Hokies (20-12, 3-10 ACC) honored former player Pete Frates before the game, bringing awareness to the disease.
