Hutch Award Luncheon

Hutch Award Luncheon

A Unique Opportunity to Support Fred Hutch While Dining on the Mariners’ Home Field

Event Details

Join us on May 6!

Please join us for the 2020 Hutch Award Luncheon where we’ll honor the 55th Hutch Award® winner, hear from Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson, and raise funds to accelerate cancer research at Fred Hutch.

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 this year will help us discover cures faster.

Reggie Jackson

Reginald Martinez Jackson is a former professional baseball right fielder who played 21 seasons for Major League Baseball teams, including the Kansas City / Oakland Athletics, Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees, and California Angels. Jackson led his teams to first place ten times over his 21-year career. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1993.

Jackson was nicknamed "Mr. October" for his clutch hitting in the postseason with the Athletics and the Yankees. He helped Oakland win five consecutive American League West divisional pennants, three consecutive American League pennants, and three consecutive World Series titles, from 1972 to 1974. Jackson helped New York win four American League East divisional pennants, three American League pennants, and two consecutive World Series titles, from 1977 to 1981. Jackson hit three consecutive home runs at Yankee Stadium in the clinching game six of the 1977 World Series. He also helped the California Angels win two American League West divisional pennants in 1982 and 1986.

Jackson hit 563 career home runs and was an American League All-Star for 14 seasons. He won two Silver Slugger Awards, the American League Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award in 1973, two World Series MVP Awards, and the Babe Ruth Award in 1977. The Yankees and Athletics retired his team uniform number in 1993 and 2004, respectively. Jackson currently serves as a special advisor to the Yankees.
