Pride, Tigers go pink
The ball will still be yellow, but when Mountain Pointe hosts Gilbert in a girls softball game Friday, April 9, there will be a strong pink theme.
Instead of the traditional maroon or black and gold uniforms, the Pride and Tigers will both be wearing pink in the Race for the Base charity game, where the teams intend to raise funds for the Susan G. Komen Foundation to fight breast cancer.
There is no fee for the game but the teams are asking for donations.
The first pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m. and proceeds from the concession stand and a donation table will also be donated to the cause.
