BOSTON (CBS) – The K Men and Women are celebrating their 20th anniversary.

“20 years of watching the Sox, we’ve seen a lot of innings,” said Kirk Carapezza, K Men Founding Member.

They started just as kids in 1998 posting Ks on the back wall of the bleachers tracking Pedro Martinez’s strikeouts.

“It was a time when Boston kind of shut down every time Pedro pitched. It was a real event,” said Carapezza.

To celebrate 20 years the K Men and Women are giving back and raising money for The Jimmy Fund at Dana Farber by selling merchandise online.

“We’ve raised about $8,000 our goal is to raise $20,000 before the end of the season, the year,” said Carpezza.
