The Orioles today announced that an online charity auction for the orange Spring Training jerseys worn this spring will take place on orioles.com/spring and orioles.com/auctions beginning today at noon ET. The auction will run until Friday, April 1, at 10:00 p.m.
The orange Spring Training jerseys feature the new 2016 design, which includes a Florida patch on the right sleeve and sublimated lettering and numbers on the back of the jerseys, featuring various MLB and Spring Training logos. The jerseys of select players and manager BUCK SHOWALTER were autographed and authenticated following the March 7 game vs. the Minnesota Twins.
Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Orioles Charitable Foundation, which raised nearly $320,000 through game-used memorabilia and online auctions in 2015. The Baltimore Orioles Charitable Foundation and the Baltimore Orioles, Inc. support many civic and charitable organizations with the goal of enriching the lives of fans in the community. The Foundation raises money through various means and donates funds to worthy local causes and charities.
