“Boston College baseball and softball players will soon do their training inside the Pete Frates Center. BC is honoring their former baseball captain by naming their new training facility after him, the school announced Wednesday.
The Pete Frates Center will give student athletes a chance to practice year-round. It will be a 31,000-square foot indoor baseball and softball facility with all the bells and whistles, featuring hitting tunnels, an indoor turf field, strength and conditioning space, and a hospitality area. Construction got underway earlier this month, with the Pete Frates Center scheduled to open in the summer of 2020.
Frates and his family, along with Boston College head baseball coach Mike Gambino, were on hand when athletic director Martin Jarmond made the announcement on Wednesday.
“It’s the culmination of a well-lived life. This building, what I’m hoping, is all this strength, determination, energy and effort is transferred from Pete right into this building,” said Pete’s father, John.”
