A's select Honorary Bat Girl for Mother's Day

OAKLAND -- Stephanie Serrano-Osorio will represent the A's on Mother's Day on Sunday as part of the 2012 Honorary Bat Girl program, which recognizes baseball fans who have been affected by breast cancer and are committed to "going to bat" in the fight against the disease.

Serrano-Osorio will be recognized on the field in a pregame ceremony before Oakland's contest against the Tigers and will receive pink MLB merchandise and two tickets to the game.

During the game, several players are expected to use pink bats by Louisville Slugger, stamped with the MLB breast cancer awareness logo. All players will wear a symbolic pink ribbon on their uniforms, along with pink wrist bands, to further showcase their support.

In addition, commemorative dugout lineup cards will also be pink.
