In addition to the tickets, the winner of each individual game auction will also receive four (4) field passes for batting practice and participate in a meet and greet with Cub's Manager Joe Maddon prior to the game.
One hundred percent of the net proceeds will benefit the Lafayette Baseball scholarship fund. Any amount bid that is over the value of the tickets can be considered a tax deductible donation per IRS regulations.*
