O's sport pink, honor Dr. John Fetting

MLB.com @Britt_Ghiroli

BALTIMORE -- Pink was everywhere on Sunday at Camden Yards, as the Orioles and Rays -- in conjunction with teams from around baseball -- showed their love to their mothers in support of a good cause.

The O's sported pink caps -- which will be autographed and available through orioles.com/auction -- with many others donning pink cleats, socks and wrist bands. Louisville Slugger will again donate proceeds from the sale of their pink bats, which will be stamped with the MLB breast cancer awareness logo, to Susan G. Komen and Stand Up To Cancer. MLB will also donate its licensed uniform royalties through Mother's Day apparel to Susan G. Komen and Stand Up To Cancer.
