It's the fantasy of many to step into the Fenway Park batter's box to try to face down the Green Monster, and that's precisely what Jimmy Fund Fantasy Day is for.

More than 2,000 people attended last year's event, raising about $215,000 for cancer research. A select few were even able to earn their way onto the field, getting a chance to take a few swings and run the bases. Even the beneficiaries of the Jimmy Fund took part, with a few of the youngsters joining in and taking their hacks.
