Get ready for pink baseballs

For the eighth consecutive season, Major League Baseball will

show its support in the fight against breast cancer on Mother’s

Day.

This Sunday, numerous players will use pink bats, made by

Louisville Slugger. As in past years, many of the bats will be

auctioned to raise money for the battle against breast cancer.

There also will be pink ribbons on uniforms, pink wristbands

worn by some players and pink commemorative dugout lineup

cards.

But this year, MLB is adding a new pitch to the tradition.
