Dellin Betances is teaming up with 108 Stitches to raise money for Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. 108stitches.com is selling T-shirts with the strikeout “K” and, since he knows a thing or two about K’s, Betances will represent the Bombers.

According to their website: Let’s Strike Out Cancer was started by Major League pitcher, Jason Motte, to help people directly affected by the disease. He has since enlisted other players from all 30 teams to join the fight. You can too. With the purchase of any K Cancer tee, eight dollars will go to the selected players charity, and two dollars will go to the Jason Motte Foundation. Just pick your player, pick your size, and team up for a cure.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center was founded in 1884 as the New York Cancer Hospital. Its main campus is located at 1275 York Avenue in Manhattan, and has campuses on Long Island, in Brooklyn, Westchester and multiple in New Jersey. In 2014, it was ranked the number 1 cancer hospital in the country by U.S. News & World Report.
