Press release below from the Boston Red Sox
BOSTON, MA – The Red Sox today announced two back-to-back days of college baseball at Fenway Park on Friday, April 20, at 6 p.m. when Army will take on Navy, followed by Boston College’s seventh annual ALS Awareness game against Florida State on Saturday, April 21, at 3 p.m.
Ticket proceeds from both matchups will be donated to charity. Proceeds from the Army-Navy game will benefit the Home Base Program, a partnership between Massachusetts General Hospital and the Red Sox Foundation that helps veterans suffering from PTSD and other “invisible wounds of war.” Boston College’s annual ALS game played in honor of former captain Pete Frates, who was diagnosed with ALS in March 2012, will benefit the Pete Frates Home Health Initiative.
Since Frates’ diagnosis with ALS, the Eagles have held an annual ALS Awareness Game at Eddie Pellagrini Diamond at Commander Shea Field. This will be the second year the charity game will be held at Fenway Park. The April 20 matchup is the first time Army will host a baseball game at Fenway Park
