Here's the pitch: It's not even October — the month dedicated to breast cancer awareness — yet umpteen fund-raising events are taking over the city. To make it easy to do your part, the L.A. chapter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation's Bat for the Cure covers all the bases and is a baseball fan's dream. (It's pricey, but what cost do you put on fighting a disease that is predicted to claim more than 40,000 lives by year's end?) For $275, the Ultimate Fan package includes a catered luncheon, a loge seat for the Dodgers vs. Cubs game, a clubhouse tour (hey, no sneaking off to the showers) and postgame batting practice on the field with the Official Dodgers Practice Batting Team. The $200 Super Fan package includes lunch, a loge seat for the game, clubhouse tour and warm-up on the field. For $125, the Fanatics package includes lunch and a loge seat.
