When Pete Frates was diagnosed with ALS in March of 2012, his former Boston College baseball teammates Nick Asselin and Adam Crabtree knew they had to do something to help.
“If you know Pete,” Asselin said, “Pete’s one of those guys that wouldn’t even think twice of giving back or lending a helping hand if you asked him.”
Asselin and Frates joined the Eagles as freshmen together in 2003 and they roomed with each other during their junior year.
“You can just kind of tell by his personality, he was warm and caring, but on the field he was an animal,” Asselin said.
When news spread of Frates’ diagnosis, Asselin couldn’t believe it.
