The auction is live on MLB.com/wintermeetingsauction from now 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.

Bidding for both packages being offered by the Twins began at $500. The winning bidder for the Fortnite package will receive the opportunity to visit Target Field to play the video game for an hour with May, who has been an avid streamer of video games on Twitch for Luminosity Gaming and founded the startup Esports Lab. The package also includes the opportunity to watch batting practice from the field and four tickets to the day's game.

May and the Twins previously hosted "FortDay" at Target Field in September, during which he teamed up with professional gamers for a live gaming session in front of fans.

The winner of the Target Field tour package can bring up to 40 guests on a two-hour tour of Target Field with team curator Clyde Doepner on a non-gameday Saturday.
