Reds at Redbirds: Give ’em Hell, Boys

Real Men Wear Pink

On Tuesday, August 28, the Louisville Bats wore special pink jerseys in support of the fight against breast cancer. The jerseys have all been signed, and are now up for auction.

Ryan Jorgensen, Joey Votto, and Jay Bruce are tied for the lead at $260.

Ryan Jorgensen:

Mark Bellhorn's jersey is next, with a $245 bid, but don't count those chowderheads out yet. Bellhorn's item has gotten the highest bid in all Bats charity auctions this year, often with a late surge.

Paul Janish:

Joey Votto and Aaron Herr:

Marcus McBeth with the strikeout:

Jeff Bannon:

Anderson Machado:

Even Buddy Bat wore a pink jersey:

Proceeds will be donated to the Louisville chapter of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Auction ends at midnight, Sept. 3.
