Diamond Petrels to Promote Breast Cancer Awareness This Weekend

The Oglethorpe baseball team will wear pink warm-up shirts for this weekend's games versus Rhodes College on the Brookhaven campus in support of breast cancer awareness. The team invites members of the Oglethorpe community in attendance to wear pink to help promote the National Cancer Society's "Think Pink" initiative raising awareness in the fight against breast cancer.

The weekend activities begin with the annual Oglethorpe alumni baseball game on Anderson Field at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 9 followed by a scheduled doubleheader of collegiate baseball featuring the Stormy Petrels versus the Rhodes College Lynx. First pitch for Saturday's twin bill is slated for 4:00 p.m.

On Sunday, the Petrels will continue their support of breast cancer awareness prior to a 1 p.m. first pitch in the series finale versus Rhodes. Pregame introductions will also feature a Senior Day celebration to honor Oglethorpe's baseball seniors who will graduate in May. Additionally, the Oglethorpe Student Government Association is sponsoring food from the Varsity for the first 200 hundred students in attendance with a Petrel Pass.
