Red Sox pitcher and all-around good guy Tim Wakefield has teamed up with Warner Bros. to help raise money for the veteran pitcher’s charity.
Wakefield, who was just recently announced as one of baseball’s nominees for the Roberto Clemente Award for his charitable work in the community, is now being featured along with some classic Looney Tunes characters.
Wakefield and the characters come together in “Knuckled Under by Wakefield,” a limited-edition Warner Bros. print featuring Wakefield taking the Fenway Park field with some of the Looney Tunes’ most recognizable characters.
The print shows the knuckleballer baffling Daffy Duck with his signature pitch while Bugs Bunny burrows through the Fenway infield, amongst other hijinks.
Autographed prints can now be purchased at http://www.KnuckledUnderbyWakefield.org and proceeds will go to Wakefield’s favorite charity, New England’s Pitching in for Kids.
“‘Knuckled Under by Wakefield’ is a spectacular limited edition that is special to my heart,” Wakefield said. “To have Warner Bros. create a one-of-a-kind piece of art with me and my favorite Looney Tunes characters at Fenway Park is simply amazing. I’m particularly proud that proceeds from Knuckled Under by Wakefield will be going to a great cause through the Pitching in for Kids charity foundation.”
