It’s one of the Boston Red Sox’ most-cherished traditions.

Each year, the Sox welcome a group of Jimmy Fund patients to escape New England’s late-winter chill and head down to sunny Florida to join the team at JetBlue Park. This isn’t just some meet and greet, either, as the kids get to show off their hitting and fielding skills with the players while spending quality time getting to know the local nine.

Check out this year’s visit in the video below.

Just a reminder that the annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon will run from Tuesday, Aug. 27 to Wednesday, Aug. 28 this year.
