UMPS CARE Charities Online Auction
WHEN: May 2 - May 11, 2014
Major League Baseball umpires offered over 200 items and one-of-a-kind VIP experiences during the 6th Annual Online Auction. Some of the items up for auction included a signed Albert Pujols cleat, Batting Practice Packages at many Major League ballparks across the country, an MLB Umpire Plate Coat, suite packages for many of the Minor League teams and more! There were plenty of items for the non-baseball fan as well. This year's auction raised over $60,000!
All proceeds from the auction support UMPS CARE Charities youth programs to provide Major League Baseball experiences for children awaiting adoption, Build-A-Bear Workshop experiences for hospitalized children coping with serious illness, college scholarships for deserving young adults who were adopted as children, and financial assistance for families in need. UMPS CARE Charities is the official charity of Major League Baseball umpires.
A special thanks to all those who donated items, helped spread the word about the auction or bid on one of our many packages. We appreciate your support!
