St. John’s Prep will take on Xaverian Brothers High School at Fenway Park on Saturday, April 21 prior to Boston College’s 7th annual ALS Awareness game.
Tickets for the single-admission doubleheader, which starts with the 10:30 a.m. high school game followed by the 3 pm. BC vs. Florida State game, are $10 and on sale now at redsox.com/alsgame.
“The chance to play at Fenway Park is a huge thrill for our players and fans, but what makes this game meaningful is the opportunity for St. John’s and Xaverian to come together in this iconic park to help patients and families who are living with ALS today,” said Headmaster Edward P. Hardiman, Ph.D.
All proceeds from the two games will benefit the Peter Frates Home Health Initiative, a cause that is close to both high schools and BC. Pete Frates ‘03, a graduate of St. John's and BC, has been living with ALS for six years. The Beverly native ignited a cultural phenomenon by popularizing the “Ice Bucket Challenge” in the summer of 2014, ultimately raising more than $220 million worldwide in the search for a cure. Brother Raymond Hoyt, C.F.X., a 1970 Xaverian graduate and longtime teacher and assistant principal there, passed away in October 2017, only 15 months after being diagnosed with ALS.
