    The San Francisco Giants are having an online auction to help  raise money for earthquake victims in Haiti.

    The team will be auctioning 10 pitches off a Giants starting  pitcher. The package includes four Field Club seats, a pre-game field visit,  an autographed bat signed by any player and a baseball signed by the Giants  2010 pitching staff.

    The Giants also will be auctioning a private meeting with two-time  Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum as well as private hitting instruction  with Giants player Pablo Sandoval and hitting coach Hensley Muelens.

    All proceeds from the auction will be coordinated through UNICEF,  which is assisting victims of Tuesday's 7.0-magnitude earthquake with  supplies and recovery efforts including providing temporary shelter and  getting residents clean water.

    The auction began last Friday. Bidding will close next Friday at 7  p.m. To place a bid visit
