Last week the Boston Crusaders hosted a huge gala event inviting decades worth of alumni and supporters to the Boston area in celebration of the corps’ 75th anniversary. In this episode of the Field Pass presented by Zildjian, host Dan Potter gets an inside look at what it’s taken for this corps that was originally founded as the Most Precious Blood Crusaders in 1940 to make it to this momentous milestone, and what the corps’ familiar acronym “BAC” will stand for as the organization looks forward to its next 75.
