Boston College will honor former BC baseball captain Pete Frates ’07, by naming Phase II of the Harrington Athletics Village as the Pete Frates Center, thanks to the generosity of the Yawkey Foundations and a growing community of donors. Frates, 34, was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) at age 27, and has been a leader in the fight for a cure since 2012, most notably through his role as the inspiration for the Ice Bucket Challenge campaign in 2014. The Pete Frates Center will provide a 31,000-square foot indoor baseball and softball facility featuring locker rooms, hitting tunnels, indoor turf field, strength and conditioning space, and a hospitality area. It will be located at the Harrington Athletics Village, which opened in 2018. Read More.
