Photos: Boston Red Sox Recognize Pete Frates Day in Boston.

The city of Boston today declared Sept. 5 as Pete Frates Day in honor of Pete Frates, the former Boston College baseball player whose battle with ALS inspired the Ice Bucket Challenge.

In attendance at the proclamation were Boston Red Sox President and CEO Sam Kennedy and Chairman Tom Werner, as well as Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred.

Here are some quick photos from an Major League Baseball media availability appearance in Fort Myers, Florida at the beginning of Spring Training. I was asked by MLB to cover the event. 

Baseball is back in business for the year! More to come from Red Sox Spring Training soon.

Yesterday was an exciting day to be at Fenway Park. In the morning, the Red Sox front office was invited to listen in on a talk by the new Commissioner of baseball, Rob Manfred, during his visit to Boston.

In the afternoon, the Red Sox offense broke out, as Brock Holt collected hit for the cycle and led the team to a win. What a game!

Now for some much needed rest and down time after two long back-to-back home stands.
