Joe Girardi, the current manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, is a household name in the world of Major League Baseball. Girardi played for the Chicago Cubs, Colorado Rockies, New York Yankees, and St. Louis Cardinals. During his 15-year playing career, Girardi won three World Series championships with the Yankees in the 1990s and served as the catcher for both Dwight Gooden’s no-hitter and David Cone’s perfect game.

When Girardi pivoted to the management side of the game, he became the Yankees’ bench coach in 2005 and then managed the Florida Marlins for one season and was named the National League (NL) Manager of the Year. Girardi was the manager of Yankees from 2008 to 2017, winning the 2009 World Series over the Phillies. He has also served as an analyst for MLB Network and Fox Sports.

This year, in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines for gatherings, sponsors will be in attendance in person at the JCC, and general admission and patron ticket holders will be able to view the event via livestream.

Proceeds from the Sports Award Dinner benefit an ever-increasing need for Fitness & Wellness program scholarships and services for children, including adaptive activities for those with special needs. Programs include youth sports leagues, nutrition counseling, wellness classes and obesity prevention.
