The Minnesota Twins will honor the family of Jacob Wetterling with red jerseys and a No. 11 patch on their uniforms, on Friday night when they play Cleveland.
The Twins announced they'll hold an online auction for 11 of the jerseys, with proceeds going to the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center (JWRC.) The JWRC was founded to educate and assist families and communities in order to address and prevent the exploitation of children.
Jacob's remains were found in central Minnesota last week, nearly 27 years after he went missing. Danny Heinrich confessed to abducting and killing him in federal court on Tuesday.
Jacob wore a red No. 11 jersey playing sports as a youth, and his family has encouraged people to use those as symbols of hope in honor of their son.
