Spring Training Online Auction Coming Soon!
Major League Baseball Spring Training has been a Florida tradition for more than 130 years.
To celebrate Spring Training 2024, the Tampa Bay Times Newspaper in Education program (NIE) will be auctioning off dozens of autographed baseballs, tickets and other baseball-themed items to raise funds for our organization.
One hundred percent of funds raised will be used to provide educational resources to schools in Tampa Bay, Florida.
NIE serves teachers, students and families by providing schools with class sets of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Tampa Bay Times plus award-winning educational publications, lesson plans, teacher guides, classroom materials and many more resources.
NIE is a member of Florida Press Educational Services (FPES), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of newspaper professionals that promotes literacy and critical thinking, particularly for young people.
