Softball teams ‘knock out’ cancer

August 9, 2011

While perhaps not unprecedented, it was certainly unusual for girls softball games to be played with pink softballs; but that’s what happened Saturday during the knock out cancer event held in Bremen.
The big 14U game between the Bremen Knock-outs and the Nappanee Storm was played to celebrate the lives of those who have beat cancer, in remembrance of others who lost their battle against the disease, and as a fundraiser to help save lives in the future.
