MLB TO OFFER ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME EXPERIENCES AND UNIQUE ITEMS IN AUCTION WITH PROCEEDS GOING TO CANCER RESEARCH

For the fourth consecutive year, Major League Baseball, MLB Advanced Media, MLB Network and the 30 Clubs have organized a Winter Meetings charity auction that includes once-in-a-lifetime baseball experiences and unique items to raise awareness and funds for cancer research.  This initiative, which has raised nearly $500,000 since its inception, was inspired by the numerous employees, friends and fans of the game who have been affected by cancer.

A significant portion of the proceeds will go to Stand Up To Cancer, a longtime partner of Major League Baseball, its founding donor in 2008.  In addition, this year’s auction will benefit Do It For Durrett, in honor of the late Texas Rangers ESPN.com beatwriter Richard Durrett, who passed away suddenly last year, and the YouCaring page established for Miami Marlins Sun Sentinel beatwriter Juan C. Rodriguez, who is currently battling a brain tumor.

The auction is live on MLB.com until Thursday, December 10th at 9:00 p.m. (ET).  Following are some of the Brewers-related items supporters can bid on, with a full list here:

Brewers to Host “Dutch Auction” for Bats Autographed by Wall of Honor Inductees

Last Friday,we welcomed a group of former players and team personnel to Miller Park to induct the inaugural “Wall of Honor” class. A total of 36 former Brewers players participated, marking what is believed to be the largest gathering of Brewers alumni in team history, surpassing the 31 former players who came in for the final game at County Stadium in 2000. They were joined by Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, Hall of Famer Bob Uecker, and representatives from honorees who were unable to attend.

While in Milwaukee, all 38 honorees signed five baseball bats, which will be auctioned off in a “Dutch Auction” at Brewers.com/auctions, beginning tomorrow at 10 am CT. As part of the Dutch auction, the top five bids will each receive a bat in the amount of the fifth-highest bid. There is a $500 minimum bid with increments in the amount of $25. The auction will continue through Wednesday, July 2 at 11:59 p.m. CT.

Wall of Honor autographed bat

The inscription on the bats read: “Brewers Wall of Honor Dedication Ceremony – June 13, 2014. Once a Brewer, Always a Brewer.”

Proceeds from the auction will benefit Brewers Community Foundation.

The Wall of Honor commemorates Brewers players and personnel who have met a set criteria based on service to the club or individual accomplishments. Fifty-eight honorees are included in the inaugural class. A permanent display outside of Miller Park, located along the north side wall near the “Hot Corner” features a plaque of each inductee with their photo and a brief synopsis of their playing career. The plaques were designed by Matthews International, designers of the plaques for the National Baseball Hall of Fame as well as the plaques on the Milwaukee Braves Wall of Honor at Miller Park.
