Yesterday several Major League Baseball players were spotted using pink bats, yes PINK bats! It's all part of a Mother's Day campaign to increase awareness for breast cancer. The players signed the game bats, which were collected by MLB to be auctioned off with proceeds going to breast cancer charities. In addition to the pink bats, players all wore pink wristbands and ribbons on their uniforms. Louisville Slugger is also selling the “Going to Bat for Breast Cancer” bats on its site. Fifteen dollars of every purchase will be donated for the cause.
