It’s part of a major league baseball initiative to go to bat against breast cancer.

Each team is running a vote for the honourary bat-girl to take place on Mother’s Day.

Cam Linwood plays baseball with Melissa Kolesar and he says Melissa is a huge baseball fan who is always helping others.

“She’s a big supporter of breast cancer awareness in general, Linwood says she’s helped raise tens of thousands of dollars over the years in a number of different events and last September, she found out that she herself is diagnosed with stage three breast cancer.”

She is one of ten finalists for the Blue Jays and you can vote for Melissa’s profile Dare Enough right here.
