PHOENIX – The D-backs will celebrate Mother’s Day this Sunday with an evening game vs. Washington Nationals at 5:05 p.m. at Chase Field. The first 10,000 moms will receive a D-backs Mother’s Day Tote Bag, courtesy of bubly Sparkling Water. Moms are also invited to run the bases after the game, along with kids 15 and younger. The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation will donate $1 to Phoenix Children’s Hospital for every mom and kid that crosses home plate.
D-backs players and on-field personnel will wear pink-themed items, including special caps and socks, and will use Mother’s Day themed baseballs and bases for the game. Game-used baseballs and bases will be available for purchase at D-backs Authentics beginning May 14 to benefit the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation.
The D-backs will honor breast cancer survivor and honorary bat girl Mary McGonegle during a pregame ceremony as part of a contest that Major League Baseball held that recognizes baseball fans who have been affected by breast cancer. McGonegle is a breast cancer survivor of seven years and currently has two family members, her brother and his wife who are battling cancer of a different kind. McGonegle is a mother of two and was selected as the D-backs bat girl based on her commitment to the battle and demonstration of substantial local community impact.
