Flood Relief Charity Auction

Folks, I need your help. We’ve got this great charity auction going over on MiLB.com. The money raised will go to MiLB Charities, which will help cities and towns that were hit hard by the recent flooding. There’s some great stuff worth bidding on. Each player involved played in one of the Minor League towns that was hit particularly hard. I’ll list them below for easy perusal. As of this writing, the grand total was just over $1100. We can do a lot better than that, can’t we? Spread the word any way you can before the deadline (Wednesday, 4 p.m. ET)
