The 2013 Baseball Beanpot gets underway at Fenway Park this afternoon. The first game of the doubleheader features the Boston College Eagles and the Harvard Crimson; in the second contest, the Northeastern Huskies will face the Massachusetts Minutemen. BC’s game is the consolation game, while Northeastern and UMass will play for the title.
Regardless of the fact that Boston College is not in the Beanpot championship game, this year’s tournament finals at Fenway will support a special BC cause. Net proceeds from the ticket sales on Monday will benefit the Pete Frates #3 Fund.
Frates, a former Boston College Eagles baseball player who graduated six years ago, has become one of the leading faces of the drive for ALS research since his diagnosis.
The Boston College half of the doubleheader begins at 2pm ET and tickets cost $10. Tickets may be purchased through the Boston Red Sox.
