Bridgewater, NJ- The Somerset Patriots and the Somerset Health Care Foundation will host a special Mother’s Day Celebration featuring Breast Cancer Awareness Day and honor Women In Baseball at TD Bank Ballpark on Sunday, May 12th.
All moms and their children will be invited down on the field to begin the event with a special mothers and kids catch beginning at 11:00 am. The catch is a first time event for Mother’s Day, modeled after the team’s very popular promotion held each year on Father’s Day.
The Patriots will host a special Mother’s Day Brunch from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm in the picnic patio. Brunch tickets are $39 a person, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting The Steeplechase Cancer Center at RWJ University Hospital Somerset.

Brunch ticket holders will enjoy a special menu and can watch the game from the picnic patio overlooking left field. To purchase tickets for the Mother’s Day Brunch online, select Mother’s Day Brunch or Ballpark BBQ options.
There will be a pre-game ceremony recognizing breast cancer survivors, volunteers, and representatives involved in the fight against the disease. The pre-game ceremony is scheduled for 12:30 pm and will include representatives from the Steeplechase Cancer Center, breast cancer survivors, and special guests.
The game against the Lancaster Barnstormers will begin at 1:05 pm. All Patriots players and coaches will be wearing pink Patriots jerseys in the style of the classic baseball movie A League Of Their Own. The jerseys are designed to honor women in baseball and will be auctioned off during the game to benefit The Steeplechase Cancer Center. Fans can bid on the game-worn jerseys through the team’s DASH Auction platform both online and through the Patriots Mobile App during the game.
The first 1,000 women in attendance will receive a Pink Patriots Jersey T-Shirt in the style of the jerseys the players will be wearing for the game.
“Our past Mother’s Day events were always memorable ones. With the additions we’ve made this year, we feel fans are going to experience something really special,” said Somerset Patriots President/General Manager Patrick McVerry. “It’s a great opportunity to use our team and ballpark to create awareness, educate fans, and raise money for an important cause. We invite everybody to help us make a difference in the fight against cancer with this fun and unique event.”
The Steeplechase Cancer Center, RWJ University Hospital Somerset and the Somerset Health Care Foundation will be onsite to educate, distribute information and fundraise through the jersey auction and other onsite activities.
