Jason Aldean has been a long-time supporter of the fight against breast cancer, and he will be taking his Burn It Down Tour to several Major League ballparks this summer, so the league has invited him to be a member of the Guest Judging Panel for their Honorary Bat Girl program. Each Major League Baseball club will select an Honorary Bat Girl has been affected by breast cancer and demonstrated a commitment of “Going to Bat” in the fight against the disease. In total, 30 women will be selected, one for each club, and Jason will join Evan Longoria of the Rays, Freddie Freeman of the Braves and Pablo Sandoval of the Giants, along with MLB Network host and reporter Sam Ryan to help select the winners.
Jason lost a close personal friend to breast cancer, so he was honored to be asked to help select this year’s Honorary Bat Girls, who all have shared stories about their personal experience with breast cancer, or the story of a loved one, and the reason why they want to represent their favorite team as its Honorary Bat Girl.
