Brock Holt Gets FenwayNation's '16 'First Citizen' Award

Brock Holt At A Jimmy Fund Clinic
FenwayNation has named Brock Holt as their 2016 'First Citizen' for his numerous charitable efforts. Specifically, his work on behalf of The Jimmy Fund and its Dana Farber Cancer Institute demonstrate his worthiness for this award. FenwayNation salutes The BrockStar—and we are proud to give him this honor. After being nominated for MLB's Roberto Clemente Award last year, Holt said this about his work with The Jimmy Fund"When you play for the Red Sox, you just start seeing the Jimmy Fund around a lot. You start to wonder: What is it, and what is so special about it? And then I was able to take a visit there, and the first time I went there, it opened my eyes a lot to what they do and how important it is for us to kind of being involved in it. It's so close to Fenway." You can find out more the great work of The Jimmy Fund HERE.
