No ifs, ands or…

Bear Creek baserunner Ashley Gonzalez waits at first for the pitch during a game against West in the Rivals Unite Against Breast Cancer softball tournament at Arnaiz Filed in Stockton (Camera: Nikon D300. Lens: 300mm. Exposure: 1/1000th sec @ f/ 8. ISO: 200).

You’ve probably seen those sweats worn by young women and teenage girls with the words “pink” or “juicy” plastered across the backside of the pants. My wife and I have always thought they’re bit of an odd fashion statement, and thankfully my 14-year-old daughter thinks they’re weird, too (let’s hope it stays that way).

At the Rivals Unite to Fight Breast Cancer softball tournament between teams from the San Joaquin Athletic Association and the Tri-City Athletic League (which was designed to raise awareness about breast cancer and raise proceeds for organizations affiliated with the research, treatment or prevention of the disease), every team wore some sort of pink to show their support of the cause. There were pink bows and pink jerseys and pink T-shirts aplenty.

But the Bear Creek Bruins were clad in their normal uniforms of blue and silver jerseys. Except for one addition. Their white pants were sprayed with pink fabric paint. On the front were stenciled their names and numbers. Across their behinds were the words “Cure it.”

At least it was for a good cause.
