Hardcore Rangers fans who would like to donate to a worthy cause can bid on two Rangers-themed auctions, including a round of golf with legend Pudge Rodriguez.

The Ultimate Rangers Experience, which includes two tickets to attend a 2017 Rangers home game, watch batting practice from the field, hang out with Elvis Andrus and — perhaps most exciting — have dinner in the press box where you can rub shoulders with Fox Sports reporter Emily Jones, Rangers announcer Eric Nadel and Rangers exec John Blake.

The winning bidder also gets to attend manager Jeff Banister’s post-game press conference and receives two personalized jerseys.

As of early Monday afternoon, the top bid was $1,250.

Want to play golf with Pudge? Fans can also bid on a chance to play a round at the Las Colinas Country Club with Rodriguez and a former Rangers teammate. The package also includes two tickets and a parking pass to a Rangers game. The top bid was $1,025 as of 2 p.m. Monday.

The auctions end at 8 p.m. Thursday.

Major League Baseball and all 30 clubs organized the charity auction benefiting youth baseball and softball in Little Ferry, N.J., the hometown of former New York Mets media relations director Shannon Forde.

Forde died of breast cancer this year. The funds from this auction will help to build a field in her name that will ensure that her legacy lives on. The league has more than 100 baseball-related experiences and memorabilia packages available.

You can find all of the league’s auctions benefiting Little Ferry, N.J., here.
