Indians Join to Preserve Historic Negro League Baseball Museum

The Tribe will look a little different when they take the field tonight

This Auction Is Now Closed

Your Indianapolis Indians will be sporting a different look for tonight’s Civil Rights Game. Thanks to the Indiana Civil Rights Commission, the Tribe will wear replica jerseys of the Indianapolis Clowns, a Negro League American team for Indianapolis in the 1940s and 1950s.

You don’t just have to be a spectator in this fun promotion, you can also bid on the game-worn jerseys and take one home (sweat and dirt included).

All proceeds from tonight’s auction will benefit the Negro League Baseball Museum – a privately funded, non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the rich history of African-American Baseball.

Since tonight’s auction is powered by Qtego, you don’t even need to be present at tonight’s 7:05 p.m. game to bid on this unique design. Bid by text or phone though the 7th inning of the game.  (If you’re not present and want to watch for the 7th inning tune in to HTSN – digital channel 6.2 – WNDE 1260 AM on the radio or on iheartradio (a mobile app) or on the IndyIndians.com with the pitch-by-pitch.)
