On March 14, the Chicago Cubs will take on the Oakland A’s for Big League Weekend at Cashman Field. And the crowd will take on the UV rays with complimentary sunscreen! We have the Las Vegas 51s to thank, as they’ve teamed with Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada to raise awareness and lower skin damage. And we can’t help wondering about other partnerships the 51s might forge to spoil their devoted spectators.
