Want to learn how to throw a knuckleball from presumptive Cy Young Award-winner R.A. Dickey? Of course you do! And now you have a once-in-a-lifetime chance. All it will cost you is several thousand dollars to charity. Here's what you get:
Learn from the best with a pitching lession from Mets Star R.A. Dickey.
This package includes:
• A 30 minute pitching lesson from Mets star R.A. Dickey prior to a game at Citi Field.
• Watch batting practice from the field
• Receive 4 great tickets to the game
Here's some more fine print on exactly what's being offered:
Terms: Pitching lesson is valid for 1 person. Tickets are valid for 4 people. Pitching lesson is approximately 30 minutes. Must be used during the 2013 MLB season. Travel and accommodations are not included. We expect all winning bidders and their guests to conduct themselves appropriately when attending an experience won at Charitybuzz. Polite manners and respect for the generous donor and adherence to any rules or parameters are a must. Winning bidder and guest(s) subject to security screening. Cannot be resold or re-auctioned.
The top bid right now is $7,000, and you can bid up to $7,500, but that probably won't hold for long. An experience like this most definitely won't come cheap.
