For the game, D-backs players and on-field personnel will wear pink-themed items, including special caps and socks, and will use Mother's Day themed baseballs and bases. Game-used baseballs and bases will be available for purchase at D-backs Authentics beginning May 14 to benefit the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation.

During a pregame ceremony, the D-backs will honor breast cancer survivor and honorary bat girl Mary McGonegle as part of a contest that MLB held that recognizes baseball fans who have been affected by breast cancer. McGonegle is a mother of two and was selected as the D-backs bat girl based on her commitment to the battle and demonstration of substantial local community impact.
