Baseball in Boston often seems so important. But in comparison to other issues going on in the world, the sport is just a minor blip.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia understands that,  but like any player going through the mental grind of a 162-game season, it often takes a reminder every now and then. Saltalamacchia received his reminder recently when he visited the Jimmy Fund Clinic.

While there, Saltalamacchia and NESN's Jenny Dell caught up with some kids who shared their amazing stories. It was quite the experience, to say the least, for the Red Sox catcher.

Check out the video above to learn more about the visit.
