This Sunday will mark the 10th season major league baseball players will swing pink Louisville Sluggers in support of the “Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer” initiative.

Since 2006, the initiative has raised more than $1 million to support the fight against breast cancer.

Louisville Slugger has made more than 5,000 game pink bats for more than 100 players to swing in about 150 games.
