The Pirates hosted the sold out "Pitch for Hope" Women's Baseball Clinic at PNC Park on June 30, 2013. Proceeds benefit Glimmer of Hope, a Pittsburgh area based organization funding the only under-40 breast cancer study in the country.
Women ages 14 and older were invited to learn hitting, pitching, and fielding from Pirates coaches and players on the playing field at PNC Park. There was also a catered brunch at the ballpark. All participants received a commemorative T-Shirt and there was a raffle featuring autographed memorabilia.
