Pasco softball players to take field in cancer fundraiser

The Sunlake Seahawks will host their fourth-annual "K-Out Cancer Pink Out" softball game on Tuesday against the Land O'Lakes Gators. This is the first year these teams are playing each other during this annual fundraiser, and each will wear some kind of pink to raise awareness and show support for those fighting cancer. Everyone attending is encouraged to wear pink as well.
