As we have written about off and on over the last couple of seasons, former Boston College baseball player Pete Frates has been diagnosed with ALS or more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. He has taken this diagnosis to raise awareness for the disease and raise money for research.
The latest way he has raised awareness is through the Ice Bucket challenge. Unless you have been living under a rock, this has been blowing up your Facebook feed. Mine especially since I have some personal connections to Boston area athletes/celebrities.
Here are a few samplings from players/coaches around the nation taking part. You can donate to the cause by clicking here. If you have taken the challenge tweet at us @CB_Daily with your video or comment below. Continue reading

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) – UNLV baseball head coach Tim Chambers released his 2015 schedule on Monday and a total of 30 regular-season games will be played at Earl E. Wilson Stadium, which is six more than last season, while the Rebels will be on the road for 25 games.
Matchups with nationally prominent teams from the Big 10, Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences and historically strong teams from the Big West Conference, West Coast Conference and Western Athletic Conference will highlight Chambers’ fifth season at the school.
“In 2014 we played a very tough non-conference schedule and were rewarded by earning an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament,” Chambers said. “So we are using that idea again this year to play some teams that are consistently ranked in the top 25.
