Due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, we are unable to hold the 2020 Hutch Award Luncheon. We will still be celebrating the 55th Hutch Award winner, whose name will be announced soon, along with ways to honor this exceptional MLB player. We look forward to hosting the Hutch Award Luncheon in 2021.
The Hutch Award is ranked as one of the top annual awards given to a Major League Baseball player. It recognizes the player who best exemplifies the fighting spirit and competitive desire of Fred Hutchinson, the legendary pitcher and manager who died of cancer at the age of 45. His spirit lives on at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, where we are working toward nothing less than cures for every patient.
Over the past 20 years, the Hutch Award Luncheon has raised more than $7.1 million to support our lifesaving work. Your generous support helps us discover cures faster.
