BC players show support to ALS charity

The Boston College baseball team has been part of the ongoing fight against Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) disease.

Former BC director of baseball operations and current ALS patient Pete Frates was the creator of the "Ice Bucket Challenge," which caught the attention and participation of the nation this summer. The cause started as a way to raise awareness and funds.

Boston College's relationship with ALS goes deeper than that as former sports information director Dick Kelley passed away from the disease this past year.

To continue raising awareness about the disease, BC baseball players wore "No White Flags" T-shirts at LSU's Alex Box Stadium Thursday night. "No White Flags" is the ALS charity of former New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason, who battles the degenerative muscle disease.

Boston College players plan on wearing the "No White Flags" shirts underneath their uniforms when they face LSU in a doubleheader Friday.
