Red Sox prospects to sign autographs to support the Jimmy Fund

BOSTON – Boston Red Sox players and up-and-coming minor leaguers will sign autographs to benefit the Jimmy Fund at the fifth annual “New Stars for Young Stars” event on Saturday, January 9, from 11:15 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. at Jillian’s Boston.

The lineup includes: Red Sox outfielders Josh Reddick and Jeremy Hermida, pitcher Manny Delcarmen, prospect Ryan Westmoreland (ranked as the #2 Red Sox prospect by SoxProspects.com), 2009 Red Sox Minor League Player of the Year Ryan Kalish, and 2009 Red Sox Minor League Pitcher of the Year Casey Kelly. Former Red Sox great and 2004 World Series champion Trot Nixon will also be taking part in the event.

Tickets are presently on sale at www.jimmyfund.org/new-stars. Two types of tickets are available: (1) an MVP ticket at $250, which includes an official MLB jersey, plus one of the first thirty spots in line; and (2) regular admission tickets at $150 each. All ticket holders can bring one guest, but only the ticket holder may receive autographs. A buffet lunch will be served and sports memorabilia will be on sale. In addition, there will be an opportunity drawing, a silent auction, and bowling to help strike out cancer.

New Stars for Young Stars is hosted by the Jimmy Fund Council of Greater Boston and has quickly become a popular event for Red Sox fans, already having raised nearly $100,000 since its inception in 2006.

Founded in 1948, the Jimmy Fund is an official charity of the Boston Red Sox. It supports the fight against cancer at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, which is a leading cancer research and care center for adults and children, and a National Cancer Institute designated comprehensive cancer center.
