    For those unaware, Brock has been a huge part of the Jimmy Fund since being traded to Boston,
    so much so that he has been the Co-captain of the JF the past four years,


    Today, the Athletic posted an extremely touching story about Brock Holt and his wife Lakyn regarding their work with the Jimmy Fund this Christmas


    I am only going to post the opening, since the whole story is worth a read (and a click!)

    This is the single most awesome thing I have ever read about a Red Sox player.

    Yeah Brock did a good thing. Good because when you use a longer word you start to cry a little bit.

    It comes up alot in various threads. Last year it was even suggested he be released to save on payroll. I`m included in this. Just thought a joke would be fun, sorry. This is why I post so little. I`m better at sarcasm in person.

    Given the nature of our world, I often feel like a crusty, cynical old man. And while the Red Sox are an escape from that world, I sometimes carry my cynicism over to this forum.

    That is a story that stomps all over any sort of cynicism one can have.

    You are not wrong.

    Holt has been a useful player for the Sox, but what we now know was his battle with post-concussion symptoms and vertigo turned him into a player who seemed done after the 2017 season. And yes, there were a lot of calls for the Sox to simply release him in April.

    On-field results make it clear that those assessments were wrong. Off-field actions like the story here make it obvious why we should be rooting for Holt to retire as a member of the Red Sox.

    Thanks for posting, @soxhop411 .
