Kevin Youkilis was back in Boston and doing what he does best on Thursday.
No, Youk wasn’t hustling down the line or working the count. Instead, the gritty infielder was giving back to the community by taking part in his annual charity event.
Youkilis’ charity, Youk’s Kids, aims to create a community of support, increase awareness and advocate for the health and well-being of children. It’s something Youkilis is extremely passionate about, so no trade is going to put a stop to his charitable efforts in Beantown.
Joining Youkilis at the event were Bruins forward Shawn Thornton and goaltender Tuukka Rask. NESN’s Jamie Erdahl caught up with the trio to get their thoughts on various topics.
