Baseball is a game of focus, discipline, and competition.
However off the field, players have time to focus on other things, such as helping out people within their communities.
The Boston Red Sox took a little bit of time out of their day to do just that on Thursday.
Starter Nick Pivetta and newly-acquired reliever Richard Bleier took some time to visit children battling critical illnesses at the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida.
On Twitter, the Red Sox posted a few heartwarming pictures of the two pitchers hanging out with the children and introducing themselves while wearing their Red Sox jerseys.
