D-backs to auction gift baskets for good cause

PHOENIX -- What restaurants do D-backs players and their wives like to go to? What are some of their kids' favorite toys or treats? Could there really be four tickets to the upcoming Justin Bieber concert available?

You can find out if you stop by section 131 at Chase Field on Friday and Saturday nights, as D-backs wives will be auctioning off baskets that contain their families' favorite things.

On Friday, the baskets that will be auctioned off will contain the wives' and kids' favorite things, as well as autographed memorabilia. Fans can see the items and get a breakdown of what is in each basket before placing a bid.

All proceeds benefit the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation, Chrysalis and the Abe & Max Fund.

Among some of the items that will be in the baskets are tickets to sporting events, gift cards to favorite restaurants and children's books.

One of the baskets will include four suite tickets to watch Bieber in concert at nearby Jobbing.com Arena on Sept. 29.

The auctions on Friday and Saturday will take place from the time the gates open until the sixth inning.
