The tour made stops in select U.S. cities and will culminate at the Little League Baseball World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.  At the first stop of the tour in Los Angeles, former big leaguers Fred Lynn and Orel Hershiser helped coach at a Little League Appreciation Game. The tour then headed to Anaheim, California, during All-Star activities and then to New York prior to Williamsport.

The auction will last 10 days and all the proceeds benefit the Little League Urban Initiative.  Last year’s auction raised approximately $5,000.
