LAS VEGAS -- Meet the MVP or grill the manager? These Brewers experiences are among dozens of unique items up for bid in Major League Baseball's annual Winter Meetings charity auction.
This year's auction will support the Jackie Robinson Foundation and the Negro Leagues Museum, two important institutions that educate future generations of young people through honoring significant moments and individuals of baseball's past.
Bid now in Brewers charity auction
For "Meet the MVP," the winning bidder and a guest will meet National League Most Valuable Player Award winner Christian Yelich and watch batting practice from the field prior to a mutually agreed upon 2019 home game. The winner will also take photos on the field with Yelich and receive an autographed baseball and bat from him. Two tickets for that night's game are included.
"Media Member for a Day" offers similarly unique access. The winning bidder and a guest will sit in on manager Craig Counsell's pregame media availability in the dugout and postgame media availability in the interview room, watch batting practice from the field, have dinner in the media dining room and meet the team's broadcasters, and they will also sit in the press box for the game with their own official Brewers media credential. As a bonus, the winner gets an autographed baseball from Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Uecker.
The auction is live on MLB.com/wintermeetingsauction through Thursday, when it will conclude at 9 p.m. CT. Items include special baseball experiences, including meetings with some of the game's biggest stars, along with unique items donated by MLB and the 30 clubs.
