Just wondering. Quite a few players on all teams are wearing them today including Juan Uribe. Are they for breast cancer awareness?

Thanks,

Mothers day...which I think is stupid b/c we all know pink wristbands traditionally mean breast cancer awareness. Not that it's a bad thing, but maybe pick a different color or something for moms day.

Breast Cancer awareness is what I thought.

Yes it is. They talked about it on ESPN Sunday night basball.

It doesn't signal Mothers day. They just wear them on Mothers Day for breast cancer awareness. They'll do the same thing with blue wristbands on Fathers Day for prostate cancer awareness.
