October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Obviously, the Chicago Bandits do not play in October, but they still do their part for the cause.
Every season, the wear special pink jerseys for a couple games. Those jerseys are then auctioned with the money going to the cause.
Last season, I won an auction for Lacey Waldrop's jersey. Lacey was kind enough to sign it and pose with me after a later game.
On Facebook, I am in the Custom Baseball Cards group, in which people (sometimes even me) create virtual trading cards. Most of the time, these creations either replace bad looking cards from the past or give cards to players missed in sets. Recently, David Garcia posted his creation dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness. David was kind enough to make a card of Lacey for me. I greatly appreciate is effort.
For more info on Breast Cancer Awareness, check out NationalBreastCancer.org. Also, go to ChicagoBandits.com for all of the info on Chicago's National Pro Fastpitch team. Come out to a game next season, especially for "Pink" night.
