Jimmy Fund Little League Program


About Jimmy Fund Little League

Jimmy Fund Little League co-presented by Extra Innings and Franklin Sports was
co-founded by the late George Berardi, along with Rico Petrocelli and Mike Andrews in 1987. Due to the dedication of its co-founders, the hard work and winning spirit of the coaches, parents and most importantly, the players, the program has raised more than $5 million for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund.

The program gives more than 5,000 Little League baseball and softball players throughout New England the chance to continue playing after their regular season ends, by participating in Jimmy Fund Little League Tournaments. Off the field, these young heroes take to their communities to raise vital funds for the Jimmy Fund, while learning the importance of philanthropy and volunteerism, and that they, too, can make a difference in the fight against cancer. In 2017, our young all-stars raised more than $250,000 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through neighborhood canister collections, home run derbies, car washes, bake sales, and business sponsorships.

You can help make us all champions in the fight against cancer by starting a team or supporting the program in your community today! Celebrating its 32nd season, our Little Leaguers are looking to make 2018 the biggest year yet! Join us as we surpass $5 million raised!
