Ausmus’ discarded hoodie, cap being auctioned for charity
The hoodie and cap worn – and eventually discarded – by Tigers manager Brad Ausmus during his tirade and ejection Monday night are being put to good use.
They are being actioned at MLB.com, with the money going to Tiny Tigers T-ball program, which is supported by the Detroit Tigers Foundation.
During his argument with umpire Doug Eddings, Ausmus removed his hoodie and covered home plate with it, before tossing his cap toward the field while walking back to the dugout.
The action opened Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. and will close next Wednesday, May 25, at 9 p.m.
The high bid Wednesday at 3 p.m. was $210.
Appropriately, they are described on the auction website as “one of a kind” items.
