Sunday was Mother’s Day, and that meant pink bats were everywhere in Major League Baseball.
More than 240 players requested pink bats for Mother’s Day, and this was the fourth year for the Mother’s Day bat promotion in conjunction with Louisville Slugger. Now fans have the chance to own those pink bats used on Mother’s Day through auctions held on MLB.com, along with home plates, logo bases and lineup cards used on May 10.
Fans can also purchase their own personalized pink bats for $79.99 each.
Proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the fight against breast cancer. MLB has raised nearly $1 million since the program’s inception.
