Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia lives nearly 3,000 miles away from Boston, but he’s well aware of the Jimmy Fund’s impact.

“Everybody knows about it in baseball,” Scioscia said. “If you say Jimmy Fund to anyone in baseball they know exactly what you’re talking and what the connection is with the (Red Sox).”

Angels hitting coach Don Baylor, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2004, is also very familiar with the Jimmy Fund and had some good words to say about it.

“When they mention the Jimmy Fund to me, I say ‘what time and where?'” Baylor said.
