Minor League Baseball™ is proud to once again team up with the American Cancer Society for the “Hope At Bat” campaign, an effort to raise funds and awareness in support of cancer research.
The initiative will officially launch on June 23 in support of National Cancer Survivors Month and continue through the remainder of the 2022 season.
In ballparks across the country, the ACS will have cancer survivors and caregivers participate in ceremonial first-pitch events, and fans and players will have the opportunity to create “I Go To Bat For….” cards as part of in-game tributes to those who are currently battling or have previously battled cancer.
All teams will be auctioning off two team-autographed purple bats featuring the Hope At Bat logo, with the proceeds from one bat going to a local cancer fighting organization and the other raising funds for ACS’ national campaign.
Your support of this campaign is greatly appreciated.
