Winter Meetings charity auction details

Feeney died in April after more than 40 years with MLB, and the fund will support an annual scholarship to a female student in the sports management program at the University of San Francisco who exemplifies Feeney's spirit and character.

The event has raised more than $900,000 since its inception to aid various cancer causes.

Correa hit .315 with a .391 on-base percentage, 24 homers and 84 RBIs in 109 games for the Astros this year, despite missing two months of the regular season with a torn thumb ligament. In helping the Astros win the World Series, he hit .276 with two homers and five RBIs in the Fall Classic against the Dodgers. He hit five homers in this year's playoffs.
