This Auction Is Now Closed.
The Tribe will look a little different when they take the field tonight.
Your Indians will honor the baseball history of Indianapolis by donning throwback, red-white-and-blue jerseys of the former Negro League team the Indianapolis Clowns during tonight’s 7:15 p.m. game.
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 Leagues Baseball Museum– a charity 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 game to bid on this unique design. Bid by text or phone through the end of the 7th inning of tonight’s game. (If you’re not present and want to watch for the 7th inning tune in to HTSN-digital channel 6.2, on the radio at WNDE 1260 AM, via iheartradio (a mobile app) or at IndyIndians.com for the pitch-by-pitch.)
