Here is the final(ish) list of the items that will be available at the silent auction and fundraiser for the Richard Durrett Family Fund tomorrow, Saturday 6/28, from 3 PM to 7 PM at Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House in Dallas.

There are a couple items that are last minute donations that are not on this list:

  • A glove signed by local UFC favorite, Johny Hendricks
  • A hockey stick signed by Hockey Hall of Famer and Stanley Cup winner, Ed Belfour. This stick is donated by the voice of the Dallas Stars, Ralph Strangis, himself. It was given to him 15 years ago, the year the Stars won the Stanley Cup

Even if you don’t bid on an item, Goodfriend is donating a portion of their sales on Saturday for Richard’s family.

Tune into 1310 AM The Ticket at 3:40 PM or 103.3 FM ESPN Radio at 6:15 PM today to hear one of our members talk about this amazing event and opportunity to offer a helping hand.

If you around Dallas tomorrow, come out and have some fun, bid on some items, have a beer or seven, and raise a toast to one of the most genuine good guys in the North Texas sports media market.

Today. See you there, kiddos.

He is counted. For Richard.

The wonderfully talented Jamie Kelly made this flyer that we’re distributing for our fundraiser for the Richard Durrett Family Fund this weekend. And holy shit, did our local sports broadcasting teams step up.  We just started setting this up last week and already have in-game experience packages set up with the Stars, Mavericks, and Rangers respectively.

Looks like we’ve had a few more items donated that I need to include here that are up for auction:

- Game day experience with Dallas Stars television play-by-play announcer Ralph Strangis
- Game day experience with Dallas Mavericks radio play-by-play announcer Chuck Cooperstein
- An inning in the booth with Texas Rangers radio play-by play announcer and hall of famer Eric Nadel
- Autographed bow tie from MLB on Fox’s Ken Rosenthal
- In-studio experience at 1310 The Ticket with Norm Hitzges and Mike Sirois
- In-studio experience at 105.3 The Fan with Ben Rogers and Skin Wade
- Game used autographed bat from Mark MacLemore
- Game used autographed bat from Rougned Odor
- Bleacher Report goodie bags
- Texas Rangers game tickets
- multiple gift cards to various area establishments

I’ll no doubt post this several times between now and then, but there will be a fundraiser for the Richard Durrett Family Fund next Saturday at Goodfriend beer garden and burger house from 3 PM to 7 PM.

Richard Durrett unexpectedly passed away last week. He was the ESPN beat writer for the Texas Rangers since 2009. He left behind his wife, two young children, and another on the way. He was 38 years old.

Richard was a valued part of the local baseball community. He was a nerd at heart and could often be seen in his way too high cargo shorts and driving around in his minivan.  He loved talking baseball with anyone that was around. He is greatly missed.

This is the least we can do for him. If you’re in Dallas next Saturday, stop by and have a couple beers, drop a few dollars in our jar, and have a toast to one of the good guys.

The response we’ve received has been overwhelming. The following items will be auctioned off at the event:

  • 1 inning in the booth with the voice of the Rangers, Eric Nadel
  • A signed Ken Rosenthal bow tie
  • 1 Dallas Mavericks game with the voice of the Mavs Chuck Cooperstein
  • Several baseball art prints from Will Johnson of Centromatic
  • Goodie bag from Bleacher Report

If you can, please stop by next Saturday annd help us raise some money for Richard’s family!

Yesterday, Richard Durrett a long time local Rangers beat writer [most recently ESPN Dallas] passed away suddenly. He leaves behind a wife, two small children and a third on the way.

This is where I try and help in some small way. I’ve run a baseball happy hour at GoodFriend Beer Garden and Burger House for about two years, on Saturday June 28th from 3-7, couch area, I will be doing a fundraiser for Richards family. Please come out and donate what you can and if you’ve met him, please share some stories. I only knew him through his words covering the Rangers over the years. But him having two small children with one on the way hits really close to home as I have a toddler.

More details on how to donate if you can’t make it out to come later.

Baseball brings people together.

With 13 players on the DL, including several lost for the year, Ron Washington was informed today that Yu Darvish is scratched from today’s start due to a neck stiffness. This is how I imagine he’s taking the news.
