“This is the eighth Mother’s Day we’ve made pink bats for MLB players,” said Bill Clark, President of Louisville Slugger. “It makes quite a statement when Major Leaguers make a change in season and swing a pink bat. They don’t have to do this. They do it because they want to. We’re very proud of these Louisville Slugger guys.”
In addition to players receiving the bats, MLB home team mascots, plus the Dodger’s Blue Crew, will be sporting them on the field as a new twist for the fans. Louisville Slugger is also incorporating the company’s fans on social media by hosting a National Pink Bat Hunt on Saturday, May 11. They will hide 30 pink bats across the U.S. with clues posted on www.slugger.com. Once the bats have been found, winners are encouraged to post their pictures on Louisville Slugger’s Facebook page or Tweet @Sluggernation.
