On Friday, the San Francisco Giants announced an auction to raise money for the Haiti earthquake victims that will appeal to many humanitarian baseball fans. Major League Baseball has already donated $1 million for the earthquake victims and this auction serves as a way for the Giants, with the help of their fans, to contribute additional funds.

Appealing to the person who says, “I can hit a ball off of him,” one of the items fans can bid on is the chance to take 10 swings off of a Giants starting pitcher. This package also comes with four Field Club seats, a pre-game field visit, an autographed bat signed by the 2010 Giants player of their choice, and a baseball signed by the Giants 2010 pitching staff.

Also up for auction is an opportunity to have Giants infielder Pablo Sandoval and hitting coach Hensley Muelens serve as personal hitting coaches for the highest bidder and three friends. Being around the jovial Kung-Fu Panda provides a memorable experience—add the personal hitting lessons for 30 minutes, folks will be talking about it for years. The winner will also receive four Field Club seats, a pre-game meal and field visit, and four bats autographed by Pablo Sandoval.
