WHEN: April 21 - May 1, 2017
Major League Baseball umpires will offer over 300 items and one-of-a-kind VIP experiences during the 9th Annual Online Auction on MLB.com. Some of the items up for auction include Batting Practice experiences at many Major League ballparks across the country, autographed memorabilia, suite packages for many of the Minor League teams and more! There were plenty of items for the non-baseball fan as well.
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 later in life, and financial assistance for families in need. UMPS CARE Charities is the official charity of Major League Baseball umpires.
