Seems like folks outside of country music are catching on to Jason Aldean’s efforts to battle breast cancer.

Jason will be the only music star on a panel of judges to pick cancer survivors to be honorary bat girls for Major League Baseball games on Mother’s Day (May 11).

He’ll be joined on the panel by baseball players Evan Longoria (Tampa Bay Rays), Freddie Freeman (Atlanta Braves) and Pablo Sandoval (San Francisco Giants), as well as MLB Network host Sam Ryan.

Each major league team will have an honorary bat girl, and judges will pick from hundreds of nominees. You can read some really amazing, touching stories at honorarybatgirl.com.

The effort means a lot to Jason, who lost a close friend to breast cancer. Each year, he plays a special concert and donates all the proceeds to battle the disease.
