It was the eighth nomination for Wakefield, a player who has given tirelessly to charities ranging from the Jimmy Fund to his 'Pitching in for Kids' organization to the Space Coast Early Intervention Center in his hometown of Melbourne, Fla., among other organizations. On the following pages, we take a look back at the knuckleballer's 18-year Major League career...Wakefield waves to the fans at Fenway Park during a pregame ceremony celebrating the Red Sox win in the 2004 World Series.

I am so Proud of him, as I’m sure all of Red Sox Nation is!!

I have been watching him for 18 years and am just so happy for him and his family!

It really is a great honor to be recognized for the great work you do outside of baseball!

 

 

Congratulations to the S. F. Giants!! 2 down, 2 more to go!
