“Going to Bat” Against Breast Cancer

May 12, 2012

For the seventh year, Louisville Slugger has created special pink bats for Major League Baseball players to use during Mother’s Day games on Sunday, May 13 to raise awareness for breast cancer.  Only this year’s bats are not just pink…they are hot pink.

White Sox players who will use the new pink bats tomorrow include Alejandro De Aza, Adam Dunn, Eduardo Escobar, Brent Morel, AJ Pierzynski, Alexei Ramirez and Alex Rios.

In addition to playing with pink bats stamped with the MLB breast cancer awareness logo, players and on-field personnel will wear pink wrist bands and a symbolic pink ribbon on their uniforms.  Commemorative dugout lineup cards also will be pink to show support for the cause.

After tomorrow’s game, the hundreds of players who used the pink bats will sign them before they are put up for auction.  The bats also will be sold at the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory and online, all in support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Aurora (Ill.) resident Cori Cammarano was selected as the White Sox 2012 Honorary Bat Girl winner for her admirable commitment to “Going to Bat” in the fight against breast cancer.  She will take part in pre-game activities and be honored on-field at Sunday’s game.
