The Utica Blue Sox were fighting for more than second place in the central division against the Watertown Rapids.

They were raising money to benefit the American Cancer Society and the fight against breast cancer.

The Breast Care Center at MVHS along with the American Cancer Society were on hand to take donations and to stress the importance of getting screened for breast cancer.

Raquel Postilio threw out the ceremonial first pitch. After months of chemotherapy and radiation, she is in remission.

"Oh I was ecstatic," said Postilio. "I just went out, I was hopping around, jumping around. I was excited because I lost five good friends of mine in five years to different cancers and I'm like I beat this! So if I can beat it, there's people out there that can too. All my friends were with me beside me. Team Rocky, they were with me and my family, my friends, my kids, my grandkids they were all there at my benefit through the while thing."

The special pink jerseys worn by the Blue Sox will be auctioned off and the proceeds will go to the american cancer society.
