Rochester Honkers Partnership

The Hormel Institute is excited to partner with Rochester Honkers Baseball for two fun events happening this summer!
The Hormel Institute is partnering with the Rochester Honkers for their first ever “Striking Out Cancer Night” on July 9! On that night only, the Honkers will be wearing the special pink jerseys pictured above as the take on the St. Cloud Rox. That week and during the game, there will be a silent auction for the game-worn jerseys. 100% of the auction sales will go to cancer research at The Hormel Institute.
On August 6, The Hormel Institute is partnering with the Rochester Honkers to celebrate the Institute’s 80th anniversary along with the 30th anniversary of the popular baseball movie, “A League of Their Own!” Join us as we welcome actress Megan Cavanagh, who played Marla Hooch. Megan is a breast cancer survivor and breast cancer research advocate. Megan will meet fans, sign autographs, and take pictures before the Honkers take on the Lacrosse Loggers Baseball team.
More information on both of these events will be coming soon!
