Before the 2011 Taco Bell All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game in Phoenix (just after the Futures Game the Sunday before the All-Star Game), ESPN's Erin Andrews had nearly all the players in the game sign a jersey to benefit the family of Shannon Stone, the Brownwood firefighter who died after falling about 20 feet over the rail in left-center in early July.

The jersey will be auctioned off starting July 28 at MLB.com with the proceeds going to the Memorial Fund for the Stone family set up by the Texas Rangers Foundation. The auction will last for a week.

Some of the nearly 30 celebrities who signed the jersey: Andrews, Nick Jonas, Jordin Sparks, Rickey Henderson, Joe Torre, Kate Upton, Chris Pratt, Greg Grunberg, Rollie Fingers, Chord Overstreet, James Denton, Larry Fitzgerald and many more, with signatures witnessed and documented by MLB authenticators.
