WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — The Washington Nationals are auctioning off game-worn, autographed Patriotic Blue jerseys to benefit the victims of the tragic Navy Yard shootings on Monday.

The team announced Thursday that proceeds from the jerseys, worn in tribute to the victims during Game 1 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Braves, will benefit Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), which has set up the Navy Yard Tragedy Family Support Fund.

Each jersey has been signed by the player who wore it, and opening bids vary depending on the player.

Leaders in the clubhouse for largest opening bids include Bryce Harper ($2,300), followed by Ryan Zimmerman and Jayson Werth ($750).

The week-long auction ends on Thursday, Sept. 26.
