STOCKTON – Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson is scheduled to be on hand tonight for pregame Pink Night events tonight at Banner Island Ballpark.
Henderson is slated to take part in the third annual “Bombs-for-Bombs HR-A-Thon” beginning at 5:30 p.m. The homerun derby-style event was developed in 2010 as a way for fans to contribute. The idea came from the Ports 2010 Manager Steve Scarsone whose wife Becki was battling with breast cancer. She is now doing well and is cancer free.
Henderson participated in the 2010 HR-A-Thon.
The Ports have partnered with St. Joseph’s Medical Center for the 6th annual Pink Night event, which its Breast Health Services wing and bring more awareness to the cause.
