CLEARWATER – Morton Plant Mease and the Clearwater Threshers are planning to knock it out of the ballpark for breast cancer awareness and give special recognition to breast cancer survivors during the ninth annual Pitch for Pink event, set for Friday, July 11, at Bright House Field, 601 N. Old Coachman Road.

The event schedule is as follows:

• 5:30 p.m. – Gates open; the first 1,000 women through the gates will receive a commemorative Pitch for Pink tote bag

• 6 p.m. – Breast cancer survivors' lap

• 6:30 p.m. – Clearwater Threshers vs. Palm Beach Cardinals

• Post Game – Old School Concert featuring Coolio and Slick Rick

Tickets for the Pitch for Pink event start at $5. Visit www.threshersbaseball.com or call 467-4457.

Since the event’s inception in 2006, Pitch for Pink has raised nearly $200,000 to help support breast cancer programs and services at Morton Plant Mease. Amanda Koch, community relations manager for the Clearwater Threshers, lost her grandmother to breast cancer. With her and the team's passion for the cause and Morton Plant Mease's commitment to providing top quality breast health services in the community, it's a team effort to honor Amanda's grandmother and others who lost their lives to the disease, show support to breast cancer survivors, and raise more awareness about early detection during this annual event.

The Friday night event is filled with several activities including the Clearwater Threshers, Class A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, taking on the Palm Beach Cardinals, Class A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals; a breast cancer survivors' lap around the baseball diamond; a silent auction; and a post-game Old-School Concert.

The breast cancer survivors' lap is a special part of the night. Players from both teams, along with the fans, cheer on survivors as they walk a lap around the bases before the game, recognizing their strength battling breast cancer. Pink jerseys worn by the players and pink bats will be autographed and auctioned off in the silent auction along with several other donated items from local businesses and individuals. Attendees also will have an opportunity to win prizes with the Pink Balloons items.
