OLD TOWN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- It's been almost one year since the Old Town softball team won a state title, but the girls say Coyote fever hasn't died down at all. Now, the girls say it's time for their team to give back to the community by raising awareness for one of their own - former coach Clint Higgins and his wife, who battled breast cancer.

Clint and his wife will throw out the first pitch at Thursday's game against John Bapst, which as been dubbed the "pink game." Players say it's a way to let the community know they're not just softball players.

"It's kind of us saying thank you to the community and thank you to those who have helped us throughout softball who might have been affected by cancer," says senior pitcher Kendra Hayward.

The Old Town baseball team is also stepping in to help the cause. Their game against John Bapst on Thursday will also be a pink game - where the boys will wear pink uniforms to show their support. First pitch for both teams at 4pm on Thursday.
