Jimmy Fund Captain
Each year, a Boston Red Sox player serves as the Jimmy Fund Captain, building awareness and support for the Jimmy Fund's mission to conquer cancer at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
The Jimmy Fund Captain attends fundraising events, visits patients, and acts as an ambassador for Dana-Farber's research and care mission.
Boston Red Sox pitcher Nathan Eovaldi is our 2021 Jimmy Fund Captain.
As Jimmy Fund Captain, Eovaldi will help encourage fans to step up to the plate and help strike out cancer by getting involved with the Jimmy Fund.
Past Captains include Mitch Moreland, Brock Holt, Pablo Sandoval, Will Middlebrooks, David Ross, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Daniel Bard, Tim Wakefield, and Clay Buchholz.
