During tonight’s World Series opener, Major League Baseball will debut a new ad campaign for Stand Up To Cancer. The ad will feature several postseason veterans, including the Yankees own Andy Pettitte.

“I don’t think any of us really have to go very far whenever we start talking about cancer and it affecting our lives some way,” Pettitte said.

According to a press release from MLB: Ron Darling, Tony Gwynn, Jimmy Rollins and Brian Wilson will be among those featured in tonight’s television spot.
