MLB in honor of Mother's Day also will "introduce a new Rawlings baseball with pink stitching and graphics as the official game ball." Additionally, the league has selected 30 women as winners of its Honorary Bat Girl contest, which "recognizes baseball fans who have been affected by breast cancer and demonstrate a commitment to eradicating the disease." One winner per team will be recognized on the field today, or "during an alternative date for away clubs" (MLB.com, 5/12).
