Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Benefit Auction

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Benefit Auction

by Tim Reilly March 02, 2018 0 Comments

Last Friday, every MLB team wore Stoneman Douglas High School caps during their spring training games to honor the victims of the Parkland shooting.

It was a nice gesture, and the league is taking it one step further by auctioning off those caps with 100% of the proceeds going to the Stoneman Douglas Victims’ Fund. Donations will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the horrific shooting.

Players from around the league autographed these caps in hopes of enticing higher bids. Not just the games super stars, but even minor leaguers that you probably haven’t heard of before. Because they aren’t all from household names some of these caps are starting as low as $5.

Remember, this isn’t a piece of memorabilia you buy to be the centerpiece for your mantle (unless the goal is to start a discussion worth having), this is about supporting a worthy cause.

Go ahead and grab a cap signed by someone on the Mets, Nationals or even the Yankees because differences should be put aside when it comes to something like this.

If you don’t have the means to buy a Syndergaard autographed cap, grab one from an unknown player. You can wear or display it proudly, because it honors the memory of those that were lost on that tragic day.
