FAYETTEVILLE — For the second consecutive season, Arkansas will wear gold hats for a baseball game against Arkansas State when the teams play Tuesday.

First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at Baum-Walker Stadium. 

The hats, which include red trim and the Razorbacks’ ‘A’ logo, are meant to promote childhood cancer awareness. Gold is the color affiliated with the American Childhood Cancer Organization. 

“One of the greatest obstacles in this fight to end childhood cancer is lack of awareness,” the Razorbacks’ baseball account tweeted Tuesday. “Tonight, we wear gold caps to signify the importance of research and raise awareness for the thousands of children and their families battling this diagnosis each and every year.”

Arkansas wore the hats for the first time last May when the Razorbacks defeated Arkansas State 8-4.
