Nats players initiate auction to help Doug Harris

nats-nationals-park-overhead.jpgNationals players have organized an auction named “Bidding to Beat Cancer” in an effort to help offset costs for treatment to help assistant general manager and vice president of player personnel Doug Harris as he battles leukemia.

Harris has been fighting leukemia since 2015. A new cutting-edge treatment known as CAR-T cell therapy will give Harris a chance to beat the disease. His wife, Lisa, started a GoFundMe page which raised over $150,000 towards the goal of $400,000. That page is now closed.

Now Nats players are getting involved by auctioning off extremely valuable baseball memorabilia and in-game used items including bats, cleats and even a World Series ring.

You can reach the current auction and bid on items here.

The auction closes Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 9 p.m. Winners will be notified and the winning bidder of each item will have the opportunity to pick up their item directly from the Nationals players on Monday, Sept 24 from 5-6 p.m. Winning bidders also get two complimentary tickets to the night’s game against the Marlins at Nats Park.
