Pete Frates Strike out ALS Wristbands

A message from Mike Gambino, Boston College:

"We are hoping to make Pete Frates' cause of striking out ALS the cause of baseball and we are hoping this movement starts in New England. Pete is a New England kid through and through and we are first and foremost a New England program. Having this national movement start with our group would be awesome.

"The goal would be to have it start in New England the second to last weekend in April and have it finish the second to last weekend in May with all the ACC schools wearing the wristbands for the final series. MLB and the ABCA have already said they are on board.

"You can purchase the wristbands off Petefrates.com or just send the file you received via email to any embroider you use and they can make them up. You probably won't have the program needed open the file on your computer but companies that do embroidering will. 

"I thank you all for everything you have already done for Pete and this mission as well as for helping to launch this next initiative. Greg DiCenzo  and Matt Noone are also playing  a big role in helping to launch this so I want to thank them as well."
