"First of all, I want to thank all of you for helping and supporting Pete Frates and his mission to strike out ALS last year with the "Band Together" initiative. Last year was a great first year and it was very much driven by our New England baseball schools. I also want to ask everyone for their help again this year.

We've cleaned up the distribution and made it way easier to get the wristbands this year. they will be for sale at Mohegan Sun on Friday and here is the link as well:


We are hoping to have it start in New England again this year the last two weekends in April and spread throughout the country like it did last year. Read more here:
