Honorary Bat Girl to be recognized Sunday
LOS ANGELES -- Major League Baseball announced the 30 winners of the Honorary Bat Girl program Monday, with the Dodgers' recipient being Lisa Nevolo-Lewis.

The program recognizes baseball fans who have been affected by breast cancer and demonstrate a commitment of "Going to Bat" in the fight against the disease.

Nevolo-Lewis will be recognized on Mother's Day before the start of the Dodgers' game against the Rockies.

During MLB's annual Mother's Day national day of recognition, the Honorary Bat Girl will take part in pregame activities, be honored during an on-field ceremony and receive pink MLB merchandise, along with two tickets to the game.

Nine-time Grammy award winner Bonnie Raitt, who lost her brother and close friends to cancer, recorded a special video at the MLB Fan Cave to lend her support to the Honorary Bat Girl initiative and the ongoing fight to eradicate the disease.

Also on Mother's Day, hundreds of MLB players will use pink bats by Louisville Slugger, stamped with the MLB breast cancer awareness logo. Players and on-field personnel will also wear the symbolic pink ribbon on their uniforms along with pink wristbands. Commemorative dugout lineup cards also will be pink.
