Tigers’ Jones a Good Sport

Detroit Tigers’ reliever Todd Jones turned some endorsement cash into seed money to acquire memorabilia for a charity auction. He’s serving as his own consignment director.

Todd Jones got paid $20,000 to "star" as the gopher ball pitcher in a commercial featuring Derek Jeter. He’s not using it to buy himself a new toy or a new wardrobe, though. He’s about to go shopping.

Jones is also counting on friends and colleagues across the major leagues to help him raise money for a sports memorabilia auction to benefit his hometown.
