The auction will end with the last out in the bottom of the 5th inning of game two of the doubleheader Thursday and winners will be able to claim their jerseys following the game. Winners do not need to be in attendance, but it is recommended. Should a bid be won online, a member of the Rafters staff will contact you for payment and shipping info. ($5 will be added for shipped orders) Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Never Forgotten Honor Flight, which is an organization that flies veterans in the region who served during World War II, the Korean War, or the Vietnam eras to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials built in their honor.
