PHOENIX, Ariz. - The Arizona Fall League stages its second annual Pat Tillman Foundation Benefit Night on Saturday, November 1 at Scottsdale Stadium when the Scottsdale Scorpions host the Surprise Rafters at 7:05 p.m. Gates open a 6 p.m.

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Eric Byrnes will be joined by teammate Orlando Hudson and MLB Hall of Famer Frank Robinson to participate in the event that will feature a sports memorabilia auction before and during the game. Byrnes-autographed baseballs will accompany select silent bid awards.

Byrnes, who played high-school football against Tillman in their native San Francisco Bay Area, will be recognized for his fund-raising efforts as a member of Team Tillman-Professional during pre-game ceremonies that also will include the introduction of Tillman Scholars.

"Pat Tillman's inspirational life is well known across America but remains very personal in our community," offers Arizona Fall League Executive Director Steve Cobb. "The Arizona Fall League honors his memory with its second annual fund-raiser to benefit the worthy foundation that bears his name. We are proud to make this an annual sanctioned event by the foundation."

All proceeds from the sports memorabilia auction and one-half of the night's gate receipts will be donated to the Pat Tillman Foundation.

The Pat Tillman Foundation seeks to carry forward the legacy of the former Arizona State University and Arizona Cardinals football standout and U.S. Army Ranger by inspiring and educating young people who are striving to promote positive change in themselves and the world around them.
