Winter Meetings charity auction details

Here are the prizes in the Rockies' auction:

• A winning bidder and three guests will tour the Rockies' Spring Training home of Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, meet Rockies manager Bud Black, watch batting practice from the field and receive prime seats to a game at a mutually agreed-upon date. Travel and lodging to Arizona are not included in the package.

• A winning bidder and three guests will have the opportunity to tour Coors Field, watch batting practice from the field and meet Rockies broadcasters before enjoying the game from great seats.

The Katharine Feeney Memorial Scholarship Fund will be awarded annually to "a female student at the University of San Francisco who most exemplifies her character and intelligence as well as someone who possesses the ability to succeed and the willingness to mentor others. The recipient would be an individual pursuing a career in sports management who demonstrates a financial need to attain an advanced degree."
