Each year, a Boston Red Sox player serves as the Jimmy Fund Captain.

The Jimmy Fund Captain attends fundraising events, visits patients and builds support for cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Boston Red Sox first baseman Mitch Moreland was our 2020 Jimmy Fund Captain.

As Jimmy Fund Captain, Moreland encouraged fans to step up to the plate and help strike out cancer by getting involved with Jimmy Fund events.

Past Captains include Brock Holt, Pablo Sandoval, Will Middlebrooks, David Ross, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Daniel Bard, Tim Wakefield, and Clay Buchholz.
