The Broncos and the Eagles made the most of their friendly rivalry by joining together to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness.
On March 24, the ZHS Broncos played the Parkview Eagles in Baton Rouge, and on Saturday, March 31, the Broncos were the hosts at Zachary Youth Park.
Prior to Saturday's game, breast cancer survivors were recognized, and a dizzy bat contest, raffle and prize giveaways were held in between innings.
The Zachary community, as well as the City of Zachary, Zachary Police Department, Zachary High School and local businesses, showed their support by selling and wearing t-shirts on Pink Day, held March 30.
On Saturday, volunteers sold more RMWP t-shirts, as well as cookies, brownies, cupcakes and sweet treats. In lieu of a gate fee, attendees of the game were asked to make a donation.
All proceeds and funds raised benefit breast cancer research.
Both teams wore special pink jerseys donated by Lane Regional Medical Center.
The baseball field was lined with pink chalk, the bases were pink and pink ribbons were chalked at the on-deck circles and home plate area. Fans also showed their support by wearing pink.
Despite the Broncos' efforts, they lost to Parkview with a final score of 3 - 2.
However, the real winners are those who have survived breast cancer and those who will benefit from the charitable actions of the ZHS Broncos and the Parkview Baptist Eagles.
Indeed, real men DO wear pink!
