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 - a pilot program of the ALS Association and its Massachusetts Chapter that provides in-home caregiving assistance for individuals living with ALS in Massachusetts who cannot otherwise pay for services.
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. Army's April 20 matchup is the first time the Black Knights will host a baseball game at Fenway Park.
Ticket information for both games will be announced at a later date.
