Over 50 players are going to use specially made pink bats on Mother's Day Sunday as part of a campaign to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Jim Thome, Manny Rodriguez, Adam Dunn, Derek Jeter, David Eckstein, Marcus Giles, Kevin Mench, David Ortiz, Jim Edmonds, Mark Texeira, Michael Young, and Hack Blalock are named as participants.

Not really too enthusiastic about the whole pink thing. Maybe I'm too old school.

By the way Bob, can you contact me offline? There's some Chiba Lotte Marines info I want to pass on to you privately.

TPS (which is a division of Louisville) did the same thing this March with pink hockey sticks. I think it's a nice gesture.

Given how superstitious baseball players can be, I will be interested in seeing how many players continue to use the pink bats after having a good day on Sunday.

To continue using the pink bats would require special permission.

Rule 1.10 (d) No colored bat may be used in a professional game unless approved by the Rules Committee.
