As part of the “Snow Pack” program, he invited children who have been inflicted by cancer and their families to the ballpark each Sunday for a pre-game visit in the Giants dugout. J.T. was the team spokesman for CapCure, a program designed to increase awareness of and find a cure for prostate cancer. He also supported The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. J.T. lives in the Bay Area and works with the Giants as an on field instructor and also does T.V. and radio color commentary.
