The Moline Post 246 baseball team is hosting a fundraiser/dinner tonight at the American Legion Hall, 1623 15th St., Moline. The two-hour event, which was postponed on March 5 because of a winter storm, starts at 5 p.m.

Guests can enjoy a taco dinner for $5.

Autographed baseballs signed by New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and pitcher Mariano Rivera headline the items up for auction. Raffle tickets are $5 apiece, with the winner being drawn on July 6 at the Leo Brunner Invitational in Moline.

Included is a silent auction, and 2012 American Legion World Series memorabilia also will be available.
