Who says the Yankees and Red Sox can’t get along?
The two rivals have partnered to raise money for Hurricane Harvey relief by auctioning off game-worn jerseys and other memorabilia from Sunday night’s nationally televised game. All of the proceeds raised through the joint initiative will go to support hurricane relief efforts.
Yankees items, including game-used jerseys from all players and coaches from the game vs. Boston are being auctioned at www.steinersports.com/harvey. Additional items at the website include a non-game-used home plate signed by the entire Yankees team, along with non-game-used autographed caps from every Yankees player and coach. The top bid as of early Monday was the jersey worn by Aaron Judge, which had soared close to $10,000.
Red Sox items, including game-used jerseys from all players and coaches from the game at Yankee Stadium, are at www.redsox.com/harvey. Additional items at the website will include a non-game-used home plate signed by the entire Red Sox team, along with non-game-used autographed caps from every Red Sox player and coach.
“The effects of this crisis have been felt across the country, including in our own clubhouse where the hearts of many of our players have been with their family and friends who call Texas home,” said Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner Sunday.
“In difficult times such as this, we stand united with our traditional rival in helping those affected by the hurricane,” said Yankees Managing General Partner Hal Steinbrenner. “We hope that fans are inspired to support the hurricane rescue and recovery efforts in whatever way they can.”
The auctions continue through September 10.
