Players, umpires, coaches and other officials such a scorers and managers spend a significant amount of time in the sun during the most dangerous part of the year for the development of skin cancer.
The following are suggestions to promote awareness, assist in prevention and towards detection of skin cancer.

What must be remembered in all of this is that people must take personal responsibility for their own well-being. Melanoma does kill.
