WBZ-TV chief meteorologist Eric Fisher was among those taking part in the charitable event to benefit the Jimmy Fund.

Young Red Sox fan Max Mitchell, whose favorite player is Big Papi, said he had a lot of fun running the bases and hitting.

His mother said this was their first time at the event.

“I think it’s great,” Marisa Mitchell said. “Anything that raises money for the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber helps Max live longer, survive and get better.”
