Hall Honors Frates For Fight Vs. ALS

DEADLY DISEASE WEEKEND’S FOCUS

Hall Honors Frates

For Fight Vs. ALS

Pete Frates‘ father John and brother Andrew pose with the full Boston College varsity baseball team after receiving mementos from the Baseball Hall of Fame this morning at the beginning of a weekend designed to highlight the fight against ALS. At 12:30 today, Frates family members and author Casey Sherman, who with Pete co-wrote “The Ice Bucket Challenge: Pete Frates and the Fight against ALS”, will be autographing books in the HoF’s library atrium. In the past hour, in photo at right, parents John and Nancy Frates, left, Sherman, center, and BC baseball coach Mike Gambino discussed the disease and ice bucket challenge in a panel discussion in the Hall of Plaques, moderated by Bruce Markusen, right. In front are the BC ballplayers, who drove up from Boston today for the occasion. Hall VP Jon Shestakofsky said the Ice Bucket Challenge raised $220 million and underwrote “breakthrough treatments” of the disease. Today’s panel was flanked by posters of Hall of Famers Lou Gehrig – for decades, the disease bore his name – and Catfish Hunter, who suffered from it more recently. (Jim Kevlin/www.AllOTSEGO.com)

SMALLER CROWD, BUT GOOD CHEER

INDUCTION WEEKEND 2017

SMALLER CROWD,

BUT GOOD CHEER

5 Heroes Hailed Under Sunny Skies

The shutters snap as the five latest heroes to enter the Baseball Hall of Fame – it happened this afternoon at the Clark Sports Center fields in Cooperstown – smile for the camera and AN estimated 35,000 fans. It wasn’t as big as some Inductions past, but the weather was great and everyone seemed glad to be here. From left are Bud Selig, Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez, John Schuerholz, Tim Raines and Jeff Bagwell.  As Hall chairman Jane Forbes Clark noted, only one percent of MLB players make it into the Pantheon of Baseball Heroes.  (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
