Red Wings Game-Worn Jersey Auction
The Twins Triple-A affiliate, the Rochester Red Wings will be using special jerseys throughout this weekend. The game-used jerseys will then be available in an auction for fans in Rochester and over the internet. I was asked if the readers of SethSpeaks.net might be interested, and I definitely thought so. The fact that proceeds will be going to very important causes makes it obvious for me to post it here. Check out the links and consider bidding! There will be jerseys of all 24 players on the roster and the coaches. Paul Molitor will be there, in uniform all weekend. And donít forget that Joe Nathan will be there starting on Saturday! Here is much more information from their press release:
