The good folks at MLB.com recently passed along this press release to me regarding Major League Baseball, and “Susan G. Komen for the Cure,” launching their 2010 Honorary Bat Girl Contest.
It’s an online contest in support of the annual breast cancer awareness cause on Mother’s Day.
Basically, anyone can submit stories of how they are supporting the fight against breast cancer. Testimonials can be submitted by an individual (or on behalf of someone else) who had or has breast cancer, or is an advocate/supporter of the cause. One person will be selected per big league team and will be recognized during their club’s scheduled Mother’s Day celebrations. Each Honorary Bat Girl will have an opportunity to take part in pre-game activities, be honored during an on-field ceremony and receive two tickets to the game and pink MLB merchandise.
I know that breast cancer awareness is important to many – and wanted to share this news here in case you missed the press release at MLB’s site.
