This morning, the Boston Red Sox and the Jimmy Fund joined forces to help the fight against cancer. The Ninth Annual New Stars For Young Stars event at Jillian's Boston is yet another example how this organization truly gives back to the community. Red Sox prospects Rubby De La Rosa (P), Blake Swihart (C), Mookie Betts (IF) and Drake Britton (P) were joined by newcomer A. J. Pierzynski to sign autographs and meet fans as the team prepares to defend their 2013 World Series Championship. All proceeds from the event benefit Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund.
