For the third consecutive year, Minor League Baseball™ (MiLB™) has teamed up with the Derrick Hall Pro-State Foundation, to distribute prostate cancer awareness literature, including customized brochures, and branded giveaways to fans at all 69 MiLB home games on Father's Day. Teams will feature a personalized public service announcement from Hall, a prostate cancer survivor, and incorporate other prostate cancer informational messaging into their gameday programming. In addition, each team will recognize an outstanding father in its local community or someone who is battling or has survived prostate cancer.
The Derrick Hall Pro-State Foundation, a certified 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in January 2013 by Hall as a comprehensive tool for those who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and their families to help them understand the challenges and choices they face. According to the American Cancer Society, nearly one in every six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime and almost 250,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. It is the second-leading cause of cancer death in American men. Fans are encouraged to donate to the Derrick Hall Pro-State Foundation at dbacks.com/donate.
