Big Leaguers Offer Game Worn Gear for Special Auction

Life has handed former big league pitcher Ricky Stone a bad break. Now his former colleagues are chipping in with some nice game-used memorabilia for a fundraising auction.

Former teammates and friends from his playing days–and some he never met–have chipped in to help former Houston Astros’ pitcher Ricky Stone.

The Ohio native was diagnosed with brain cancer last summer. The news hit hard for guys like Roy Oswalt and Nelson Figueroa. But they’re hitting back with a special fundraising auction that’s already hit eBay.

Dozens of pieces of authentic baseball memorabilia, including game worn jerseys and equipment, autographs and other items are on eBay right now.

Here’s a link to the story…and one to the auction.
