Cubs Charities, together with Advocate Health Care will turn Wrigley pink! Chicago Cubs fans are invited to participate in the annual "Pink Out", Monday, May 11, in the Budweiser Bleachers, the first Cubs home game after Mother's Day. Each fan attending that day's game in the Budweiser Bleachers will receive a Cubs Charities "Pink Out" tee shirt to celebrate moms and women everywhere who are survivors and to promote breast cancer prevention awareness. Tee shirts will be handed out at the gates by wives' of Cubs players and coaches.
In support of the day, Cubs batting practice jerseys will turn pink. Following the event, the pink jerseys will be auctioned on Cubs Authentics. Proceeds from the batting practice jerseys will benefit mammograms for under/uninsured women through Advocate Charitable Foundation.
Fans throughout the ballpark are encouraged to participate by wearing their favorite pink items. The Cubs Store, located across from Wrigley Field at the corner of Clark and Addison Streets, will display a "Pink Out" section with pink Cubs merchandise and a 10 percent discount on engraved pink bats.
Cancer survivors will be honored by the Cubs and Advocate through notable game ceremonies. The game's ceremonial first pitches will be thrown by a breast cancer survivor, as well as Major League Baseball's 2015 Honorary Bat Girl Contest winner, who is selected for the honor after submitting a story about "Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer." The National Anthem will be sung by breast cancer survivors and survivors will also lead the afternoon's seventh-inning stretch from the broadcast booth. In addition, Advocate will bring more than 50 survivors to enjoy the game in the stands.
Fans will notice other pink touches throughout the ballpark as well, such as pink hats worn by the grounds crew and more.
