The Stockton Ports are once again partnering with St. Joseph's Medical Center in support of their breast cancer health services. Over the past five seasons, the Ports have given their support to St. Joseph's and have raised over $25,000 with help from the Stockton community. This year, the goal is to raise even more money and bring even more awareness to this cause.
Prior to the Ports playing the San Jose Giants at 7:00 p.m. the third annual "Bombs-4-Bombs home-run-a-thon" will take place on the field at Banner Island Ballpark at 5:35 p.m. All are welcome to attend this event with the purchase of a ticket for that night's game. The home run event was established in 2010 when then Ports manager Steve Scarsone was closely affected by the disease. Scarsone's wife, Becki, was battling with breast cancer. She is now doing well and is cancer free.
Twenty participants will take part in the home run event. A line will be drawn in the outfield and each softball hit over the line will be counted as a home run. Fans are encouraged to make pledges during the event. In 2011, 73 home runs were hit! Gates will open at 5:05 p.m.
The Stockton community plays a big part in making Pink Night a success. The biggest fundraiser of the night is $1 per ticket sold will go back to St. Joseph's. Adding to ticket sales and the home run event, a number of other activities will take place during the Ports game. There will be a player memorabilia raffle, T-shirt sales, and a Pink player jersey auction after the game. Local businesses also have a chance to participate by purchasing business booths, group tickets, and supplying raffle prize donations.
If you would like to be a part of this event and help support St. Joseph's Medical Center Breast Health Services, please call the Ports front office at 209.644.1900 or email email@example.com.
