On November 10, 2012 — R.A. Dickey receives the 21st annual Rotary Club of Denver’s Branch Rickey Award, an honor given to just one of the 30 nominees selected from each major league team for their humanitarian service off the field. Prior to the start of the season, the Mets’ 38 year-old knuckleballer climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, helping to raise more than $100,000 to help the Bombay Teen organization rescue young women from forced prostitution in India.
