Proceeds to Benefit Riley Hospital For Children & Riley Children’s Foundation
August 6, 2016 — Barry Allen’s alter ego concludes Victory Field’s season of four Super Hero Nights as The Flash zooms throughout the ballpark all evening greeting fans, and stopping (briefly) for photos and autographs all in support of Riley Hospital for Children and the Riley Children’s Foundation.
Indianapolis Indians players and coaches are in on the fun, too, wearing special “The Flash” jerseys as part of a memorable DC Comics Super Hero Night. Riley Children’s Foundation will receive the proceeds from an in-game, live online auction of the game-worn jerseys.
Tonight’s auction is powered by Qtego and it isn’t required one be at Victory Field to bid. All that’s needed is a mobile phone. Qtego notifies participants via text message throughout the online auction so opportunities to bid, re-bid and outbid others aren’t missed. Below is registration information and bids will be accepted tonight through the 7th inning.
If you are at the game and need assistance, visit the bright orange Qtego display in center field’s PNC Plaza before the game and at the Standings & Lineup Board near Section 109 after the game begins or simply register for the online auction by following the instructions below.
If not at the game remember that Indians home games are televised on Home Town Sports & News (HTSN), and all games are broadcast on FOX Sports 1260-AM, the iheartradio mobile app, and at IndyIndians.com.

Today Riley Hospital is recognized as one of the best children’s hospitals in the nation. Riley Children’s Foundation also supports Camp Riley and the James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home.
