Sometimes, when you have a long weekend looming and your mind is blank like a newly painted wall of a plain office building, you just can't find something interesting to write. Today is one of those days. So, imagine my joy when I got a Dodger press release announcing a special silent auction being held this weekend during Sunday's game against the Padres at Dodger Stadium.
It is being called the "Shirts Off Their Back" silent auction and will feature game-worn jersey's from Dodger players and coaches. Even the Dodger wives get involved. They have prepared some gift baskets that will also be auctioned off. All proceeds go to benefit the Dodger Dream Foundation.
The auction will be held during the game (probably ending in the later innings) on the Club Level outside of the Vin Scully Press Box. Three potential Hall of Famers will be represented in Joe Torre, Manny Ramirez and the newest Dodger, Jim Thome.
I won't be in attendance, but, if you are there, please pass along what some of the jersey's sold for.
UPDATE: I just noticed that the PR announcement mentioned it would be taking place from 3:10 to 6:45 PM. So, if you plan on bidding do it right away
