Spring Swing®, Moffitt’s Sun Safety Tour, is a partnership between Moffitt Cancer Center and the Tampa Bay Rays, offering free skin cancer screenings at specified baseball spring training venues throughout the state of Florida. Screeners look for early signs of skin cancer while promoting sun safety, skin cancer awareness and education with help from Moffitt's Mole Patrol® team.

In the 10 years of the Spring Swing program, 4,098 baseball fans have received a free screening. Our skin cancer experts have detected 4,097 suspected cancerous lesions, including 25 suspected melanomas, which is the deadliest form of skin cancer.
