Former Boston Red Sox utility player Brock Holt was a fan favorite for many reasons, but his close relationship with The Jimmy Fund is a huge part of his legacy here.
After news of him agreeing to sign with the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday, the foundation posted a touching “thank you” to Holt on Instagram on Tuesday evening.
“Thank you to our 5-time Jimmy Fund Captain, Brock Holt, for the incredible impact he has made in the hearts and lives of patients at Dana-Farber while playing for the Red Sox,” the caption read.
During his seven-year stint with Boston, Holt and his wife Lakyn took a special interest in working with The Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, far beyond the annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Telethon and monetary donations.
Though Holt reportedly is headed to the Midwest, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him continue his work with The Jimmy Fund.
