A circle of support at CBRD "Pink Out."

A circle of support at CBRD "Pink Out."

The purple, gold, and white fall baseball and softball uniforms worn by players at the Cochran-Bleckley Rec. Department had a new color added Thursday, pink.  That's because it was "pink out" night for brest cancer awareness.  It gave one team a chance to honor a couple of mothers who are battling the disease.

Lisa Dixon and Kim Fernandez have sons on the 13-14 boys baseball team.  Both are battling breast cancer.  But they were there to watch Parker (Dixon's son) and Jack (Fernandez's son) play.  The team wore pink shirts and signs of support were hung on the dugout.

CBRD officials hope to make next year's pink out bigger.
