The family of Pete Frates will be honored at Fenway Park tonight during pre-game ceremonies as the Red Sox remember the legacy of Lou Gehrig.

MLB celebrated “Lou Gehrig Day” on June 2nd but the Red Sox were on the road in Houston.  Tonight, (June 8th) the Red Sox will be honoring Lou Gehrig as well as leading ALS research advocates during pre-game ceremonies before the 7:10 Red Sox/Astros game.

The family of Pete Frates will be among those honored.  The Red Sox are also raising “funds for specialized ALS care by selling limited edition hats bearing the phrase ‘Strike out ALS | Pete Frates #3,’ in recognition of the late Pete Frates.”  According to the Red Sox, The limited-edition hats cost $20 and the proceeds “will benefit the Chelsea Jewish Lifecare Center’s Leonard Florence Residence, home to 40 patients receiving specialized care that allows them to live as independently as possible.”

You can check out the hat in the Red Sox tweet below and purchase yours here.
