The A's also have an "Alumni Meet and Greet During Reunion Weekend" up for auction. The A's are planning several reunion weekends next season as they celebrate their 50th anniversary in Oakland, and the winning bidder will meet A's alumni prior to a game.

As an "A's Intern for a Day," the winning bidder will have the opportunity to have a behind-the-scenes look at a game day by shadowing A's front-office members. The intern will also receive four tickets to that night's game.

"Spend an Inning in the Broadcast Booth" also comes with four tickets.

All items up for grabs can be found at MLB.com/wintermeetingsauction.
