The Cy Young Days Festival Committee has announced the return of the Cy Young Basket Auction Friday on Canal Street following the crowing of the 2017 queen and court.

The Amish made baskets come from the Peoli area and this year there is a picnic basket.

There will only be five numbered baskets for auction and the No. 1 basket will be the only one autographed by former Major League pitcher Jack McDowell.

The committee is hoping the Basket Auction will become a popular addition to the Cy Young Days Festival with a different basket offered each year.
