"Swing for a Cure" With the Lynchburg Hillcats

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA - Based off advance ticket sales and this weekend's gorgeous weather, it's shaping up to be a record-setting year for the Hillcats' "Swing for a Cure" game.

This will be the fourth year players will wear special pink jerseys and use pink bats during this game. Half of the money from ticket sales is donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

They usually raise about $10,000 to $11,000. This year, organizers are hoping for $13,000.

Breast cancer affects one in eight women and takes a toll on so many families. One Hillcat player can relate to that statistic.

"He was talking to me the other day. His mother has breast cancer. So this is a special night for him and he's really looking forward to helping out," said Lynchburg Hillcats assistant general manager Ronnie Roberts.

The Swing for Cure game is Saturday night at 6:05 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m. 

The first 1,000 people there will get a free T-shirt.
