Dustin Pedroia is typically known for his big bat and fiery attitude. But the former AL MVP is also a tireless supporter of U.S. military veterans.

In support of this year's Run-Walk to Home Base, Pedroia is dedicating his time to help the cause and hopefully provide veterans with better services and treatment following their time serving our country.

This year's Run-Walk to Home Base is set for May 20. For more information or to learn how to donate, visit www.runtohomebase.org
