It was only the second home game of the season, but already Hershey Bears fans held a "Pink Out" as they cheered on the team.

In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the Bears warmed up in their new pink attire before taking on the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on Sunday at the Giant Center in Derry Township, Dauphin County.

Fans cheered the team on-- wearing their pink as well. "Pink the Rink" t-shirts were also on sale during the game.

"'Pink the Rink' is a fan favorite theme night, so every year-- it's been three years now-- and every year it's stronger, we're growing every single season, so we're looking forward to a great night, " Hershey Entertainment Resorts Communications Coordinator Kaylee Dugan said.

The jerseys are scheduled to be auctioned off in a silent auction after the Bears wear them.
