In an effort to support those affected by Hurricane Harvey on the gulf coast, the Twins are auctioning off game-worn cleats from their Fourth of July game and all money raised will go to the American Red Cross. 

The game-used cleats up for auction include those worn by Miguel Sano, Byron Buxton, Max Kepler, Kyle Gibson, and Eduardo Escobar. 

At the time of this posting, the highest bids were $250 for Kepler's cleats and $215 for Sano's.

There are also autographed cleats that aren't game-used up for grabs from Brian Dozier, Hector Santiago, Buddy Boshers, and Chris Gimenez. 

What's more, Twins players have agreed to match the proceeds, thus doubling the amount they'll raise for Houston. 

Hurricane Harvey devastated areas of the Texas and gulf coast with Category 4-force winds and destructive flooding, especially in the Houston metro area. Here's more on how you can help victims.
