This weekend, the LSU softball program will be hosting its seventh-annual “Strikeout Ovarian Cancer” game and they are breaking out some special uniforms for the event. On Thursday, the Tigers took to social media to show off their special teal helmets for the game. The helmets will feature the names of women who have battled ovarian cancer.

The university will also host a “Geaux Teal Ovarian Cancer Walk” as part of the university’s festivities.

Here is Tigers softball coach Beth Torina discussing the weekend’s events and the “Strikeout Ovarian Cancer” cause:

Saturday’s game at Tiger Park in Baton Rouge on Saturday will be Game 2 of a three-game home series against the No. 9 Texas A&M Aggies. LSU is currently ranked No. 15 in the latest poll.

About Geaux Teal, via the school’s official website:

Geaux Teal’s mission is to raise awareness for women of all ages about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. The continual increase in education and overall awareness of ovarian cancer is the primary founding principle of Geaux Teal. Through this emphasis on educational and awareness objectives we hope to accomplish an early detection screening test, further understandings of the prognosis of ovarian cancer, improve doctor/patient relationships and shared knowledge as well as increased medical education. Ultimately, one day we will equate longer survivorship with women’s understanding of ovarian cancer and its dangers. Geaux Teal will promote community based events that raise awareness, increased education and research funds for ovarian cancer.
