MLB has been Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer Since 2005. Each year on Mother's Day, Major League Baseball Players, Coaches, and Umpires sport pink wristbands, ribbon decals, and other pink gear to show their support for the cause. During this campaign, each MLB team also recognizes breast cancer survivors, co-survivors, and those who have made a difference in the fight to end the disease through the Honorary Bat Girl contest.

Susan G. Komen also benefits from the sale of specially designed Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer merchandise and pink Louisville Slugger bats. More information.
