Old friend Jake Peavy, the Giants pitcher who helped the Sox win the 2013 World Series, was in town this week and gave student-athletes involved in THE BASE a pep talk. The nonprofit, which supports student-athletes with baseball and academic training as well as access to college fairs and academic scholarships, is a beneficiary of Paul and Theo Epstein’s Foundation to Be Named Later. Peavy was a big supporter of FTBNL when he played here.
