"Since starting the StrikeOut Cancer initiative over 10 years ago, NFCA membership teams have raised tens of thousands of dollars to support the fight against cancer. In addition to fundraised dollars, this initiative has provided a platform to raise awareness for breast cancer as well as support for women's cancer research," reads the official StrikeOut Cancer website.

Cal Lutheran will be selling bingo cards prior to Friday's games with proceeds going to the program. The Regals will show their support by wearing pink shirts prior to the start of Friday's doubleheader at 2 p.m.
