Boston College baseball players show their support for Team Gleason before their series at LSU _lowres


The Boston College baseball team has a unique relationship with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Former sports information director Dick Kelley died from the degenerative muscle disease last year. Former director of baseball operations and current ALS patient Pete Frates created the "Ice Bucket Challenge," which swept the nation in an effort to raise funds and awareness about the disease.

Boston College baseball players wore "No White Flags" t-shirts at Alex Box Stadium at LSU on Thursday night to support the ALS charity of former Saints player Steve Gleason.

The players will wear the shirts underneath their uniforms for Friday's doubleheader at LSU.

"Any other time, I would probably cheer for LSU, but @bcbirdball are wearing these for today doubleheader," Gleason tweeted on Friday. The photo is courtesy of the team's twitter account.
