Here is the press release:

Shoreline, WA- (March 30, 2013)-  This year Shorecrest baseball and softball teams will be taking on cross-town rivals, Shorewood in the second annual “Blue Day/Pink Night” to knock cancer out of the park.  All proceeds from ribbon sales, drawings, cupcake sales, along with donations received by players will, for the second year, be donated to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

“We are excited about the chance to play for a cause,” said Jackie Berg, Shorecrest softball coach.  “This cause is near and dear to our teams’ hearts as cancer in its numerous forms has affected players on all teams.  Shorecrest and Shorewood coaches and players are excited to raise money to find a cure.”
