Susan G. Komen® and Major League
Baseball are once again Going to Bat
Against Breast Cancer.
The sixth annual Honorary
Bat Girl contest is under way, encouraging fans to share “Going to Bat Against
Breast Cancer” stories for a chance to be honored on-field during Mother’s Day
celebrations around MLB. Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer will help raise
awareness about breast cancer while also raising funds for Komen. The
nomination site is open now through March 24, 2014, and voting will be open
from March 24 to April 14, 2014. One person will be chosen for each MLB team
and announced the week of May 5, 2014.
