Tim Wakefield‘s presence on the field was extremely important. Yet, it pales in comparison to what he’s meant to the city of Boston off the field.
Wakefield continued his generous ways on Wednesday, as he and his wife donated $10,000 as part of the annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon. The donation is just the latest in a long line of charitable contributions made by Wakefield, who said he’s donating in honor of the late Johnny Pesky.
Still, that doesn’t make the large donation any less special. From everyone, thank you, Wake.
