FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Pete Frates, a lifelong Red Sox fan and former captain of the Boston College baseball team, couldn't be there Tuesday to see his two favorite squads meet up at JetBlue Park. Yet if you looked around during the seven-inning contest between the Red Sox and BC, Frates was everywhere.
Every Red Sox jersey had the No. 3 and the name Frates on the back. Ditto for BC, the team Frates once belted a home run for at Fenway Park.
