Tampa, FL - The Tampa Yankees and The Container Store teamed up for this year's Annual Pink Out Night held on Saturday, May 4th. This event raised over $2,200 this year for the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Research Center and Institute and has raised over $20,000 since 2007.

Over 3,600 fans, the majority clad in pink attire, entered the stadium to enjoy the Tampa Yankees game and post game fireworks. Players wore pink and blue jerseys, which were auctioned off during the game. Auction winners were invited to go onto the field after the game to meet the player who wore the jersey and get it autographed. 

The Tampa Yankees are the Single-A Advanced affiliate of the New York Yankees. For more information on the Tampa Yankees visit www.tybaseball.com or call (813) 673-3055.
