Boston College Baseball Alum Chris Shaw Making His Way Through The Minors

Former Birdballer Chris Shaw, the San Francisco Giants' first round selection in 2015, is steadily inching his way toward the the big leagues. Shaw started the 2017 season in Double-A Richmond, but after crushing the pitching in the Eastern League during the first few months of the season, he was promoted to Triple-A Sacramento, just a phone call away from the majors. He's also moved primarily to the outfield, something that bodes well for his eventual call-up, which could come sooner rather than later, as the Giants have a glaring hole in left field. You can read more on Shaw's early career in the minors here.

Watch: Pete Frates Donates Original Ice Bucket to the Baseball Hall of Fame

As we mentioned over the weekend, Pete Frates is headed to the Hall of Fame. The glove the former captain used to patrol centerfield for the Eagles, along with the bucket used in the original Ice Bucket Challenge at Fenway Park, are making their way to Cooperstown, New York to be housed for generations to come, commemorating the amazing impact that Pete had not only in the field of ALS research, but also on the world of baseball in general. The Ice Bucket Challenge raised over $115 million worldwide, money that had a direct impact on recent breakthroughs in curing this horrible disease.

Two Boston College Baseball Players Named All-New England

Congratulations are in order for junior outfielder/pitcher Donovan Casey and sophomore utility-player Jake Alu who were named the the NEIBA All-New England Second and Third Team, respectively. Casey starred at the plate and on the mound for the Eagles this season, batting .286 with two homeruns and 20 RBI, while starting all 53 games for BC. He also held a 2.84 ERA with 32 strikeouts in 23 appearances on the bump this spring. Alu broke into the lineup early in the season and never looked back, batting a team-leading .331 in 48 games played. Astoundingly enough, his average actually went up during ACC play to .342, which is widely considered the toughest conference in the nation. The All-New England teams are voted on by the coaches. A list of all NEIBA teams and awards can be found here.

Help Support One Of Our Own: Pete Frates

By now, everyone within the Boston College community knows the story of Pete Frates, the former BC baseball captain who was diagnosed with ALS in 2012. Pete has been an inspiration and a leader in the fight to end the horrible disease that is ALS. He helped to raise more than 250 million dollars globally through his Ice Bucket Challenge, money that directly resulted in huge breakthroughs in curing the disease. And, now, he and his family need our help. You can read all the details in the article included in the tweet, but the short of it is, the Frates family needs our help. Their medical bills now routinely reach 85-95,000 dollars a month and have become unsustainable. When Pete was diagnosed in 2012 his family made a promise to keep him at home and away from a medical facility. And, now, that promise is in jeopardy. A family friend of the Frates', Rob Griffin, has started a fund through the Human Health Care Initiative to raise money to help keep Pete at home. Please read the article in the tweet above and consider helping out a fellow Eagle who has done so much to help others in his life. No one embodies the BC motto, "Men and Women for others," quite like Pete. It's our turn to do the same for him and his family
