BOSTON (CBS) – He will be behind the plate Tuesday night against the Padres, but Boston Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalmacchia used his Tuesday morning to visit some pediatric patients at the Boston Medical Center.

It’s a great opportunity for us as athletes and players to come out here and see some kids and put a smile on their face,” said Saltalamacchia. “Nobody likes to be in the hospital, no one likes to be sick.
