During batting practice on Friday, Tribe players wore special childhood cancer awareness shirts with a giant backwards K on the front in an effort to raise awareness. Both teams chose to wear gold ribbon decals and wristbands for the game.
Scheduled to throw out the first pitch was 9-year-old Austin Gallagher, a two-time cancer survivor who has raised $22,000 for St. Baldrick's Foundation.
