Ortiz jersey up for auction

The David Ortiz jersey buried in the concrete has been put up for auction on eBay.

The Jimmy Fund, the official charity of the Boston Red Sox, started the auction.

From Jay Lindsay:

“It’s certainly a very, very valuable piece of property,” said Mike Andrews, the chairman of the Jimmy Fund and a former Red Sox second baseman.

“We’re bitter rivals when we go on the field, but there’s one thing we have in common and that’s the fight against cancer,” he said. “I think it was wonderful they thought of us immediately but I’m not surprised.”

It's good to see that something good is coming out of this silly story.

The highest bid as of press time is $13,000. The eBay page can be found here.
