South Bend Cubs participate in Real Men Wear Pink campaign

The South Bend Cubs and the Fort Wayne TinCaps are competing to see which team can raise the most money for the American Cancer Society's Real Men Wear Pink campaign during the month of October.

Team mascots Stu D. Baker and Johnny TinCap have agreed to dress head to toe in their rival team's gear if they lose.

The Real Men Wear Pink campaign challenges men to take an active role in the fight against breast cancer by raising awareness and money for breast cancer initiatives, including innovative research, patient services, and education around screenings and risk reduction.

“The effects of cancer resonate with so many in our community. I lost my grandmother to cancer and members of our staff have lost loved ones as well,” said Chris Hagstrom-Jones, Director of Media and Promotions for the South Bend Cubs. “Participating in American Cancer Society’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign is a way our organization can give back and honor those that have lost their lives to this disease.”

The competition ends November 2.
