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.
