The Boston Athletic Association announced former Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield is the 2012 recipient of the Patriots' Award.

The award, given since 2002 by the BAA and the city of Boston, recognizes a person or group that is "patriotic, philanthropic, inspirational, and fosters goodwill and sportsmanship."

Wakefield is involved in many community events, including Pitching in for Kids. He was Major League Baseball's Roberto Clemente Award winner in 2010, an honor that recognizes community service and baseball excellence.

The Patriots' Award will be presented Thursday night at the official Boston Marathon opening ceremony. Red Sox team president Larry Lucchino will accept the award for Wakefield, who cannot attend.
