The Sugar Land Skeeters have held several jersey auctions each season in order to give back to the community and to represent different non-profit organizations. Fans are given the opportunity to bid on the game-worn jersey of their choice during the game and the winners receive said jerseys immediately following the game from the respective players. Proceeds of our jersey auctions directly benefit a number of charities, including Hope For Three, Memorial Hermann Breast Cancer Research, and Candlelighters Houston. So far this season, the Skeeters have raised over $18,000 from jersey auctions benefiting these organizations and many more to come.
In addition, fans now have the option to bid on game-worn jerseys from Swatson as well as bat boys Michael "Big Mike" Garcia and Tank Schottle. See below to see this season's past jersey auctions and what we have in store for the rest of the 2019 season!
