PORT ST. LUCIE -- Spring Swing-Moffitt's Sun Safety Tour is a partnership between Moffitt and the Rays offering free skin cancer screenings at specified baseball spring training venues between February and March.

The tour kicked off Feb. 23. Screeners will look for early signs of skin cancer while promoting sun safety, skin cancer awareness and education. Each screening stop will include free Spring Swing T-shirts, Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, and sun safety educational materials and promotional items.

During the previous five spring training seasons, Spring Swing has screened more than 2,700 people, identifying 534 suspected cancerous lesions, including 21 suspected melanomas.

Screenings will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., approximately two hours before game time on March 23 at the Port St. Lucie Mets vs. Nationals game at the Mets Stadium.

Located in Tampa, Moffitt is one of only 41 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, a distinction that recognizes Moffitt's excellence in research, its contributions to clinical trials, prevention and cancer control.
