MLB PLAYERS TO ONCE AGAIN USE PINK LOUISVILLE SLUGGER BATS TO SUPPORT THE FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER
Major League Baseball and its 30 Clubs are again joining Susan G. Komen for the Cure for “Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer,” a program that incorporates numerous facets of the game on and off the field to generate awareness about breast cancer and raise funds to help fight the disease. The initiative, which runs until May 19th, will celebrate Mother’s Day with special programs at each ballpark hosting a home game on Sunday, May 13th.
Major League Baseball players will have the opportunity to use pink bats on Mother’s Day. The total number of players participating is anticipated to be more than 200 — double the number who used the pink bat in 2006.
Player bats used on Mother’s Day will be available via auction on mlb.com after Mother’s Day, May 13th.
$10 from the sale of each pink Louisville Slugger bat will benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
During the week leading up to Mother’s Day fans can donate money to MLB’s Mother’s Day promotion, “Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer,” via www.komen.org/mlb.
