PRESS BOX / Press Releases



  • Louisville Slugger® created the pink bat initiative with Major League Baseball® in 2006 to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.   This is the sixth year!
  • Orders have tripled since 2006, when we had about 100 participating players.  This year, more than 290 MLB players have ordered pink Louisville Slugger bats to swing on Mother’s Day, May 8, 2011. Louisville Slugger is donating two pink bats per player - over $40,000 worth of product.
  • MLB will collect the game-used pink Louisville Slugger bats and auction them on mlb.com.  Proceeds go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. 
  • Together, Louisville Slugger, MLB and its other Mother’s Day partners have raised a significant amount of money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure over the years.
  • In addition to the auction of pink game-used Louisville Slugger bats, funds are also generated for Susan G.  Komen for the Cure from the sale of personalized pink bats sold to the public.  A $10 donation per pink bat sold is made to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
  • The pink personalized Louisville Slugger bats are available at mlb.com, sluggergifts.com and at the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory gift shop. 
  • Personalized pink Louisville Slugger bats make great Mother’s Day gifts or a great tribute to someone who has fought breast cancer.
