article imageMajor League Baseball donates $1 million to hurricane relief

By Matt Harding     Nov 4, 2012 in Sports
Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association support the Hurricane Sandy relief effort, and asks that you do too.
MLB and MLBPA are jointly contributing $1 million to organizations helping communities devastated by Hurricane Sandy, such as Feeding America, the American Red Cross and The Salvation Army.
Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast last week, causing immense destruction in its path. The New York Yankees were the first individual team to step up and support relief efforts, pledging $500,000 to the American Red Cross.
"As our thoughts and prayers remain with all those who have been impacted by this tragedy, it is a privilege for Major League Baseball to support our fans and their communities during this urgent time of need," Commissioner Bud Selig said. "All of us at Major League Baseball are grateful to our society's leaders, first responders and volunteers, and we hope that our contribution to these humanitarian organizations will assist in the vital relief efforts along the East Coast. This is a time when the resiliency of the great American spirit will prevail."
Major League Baseball is continuing to spread the word about their relief efforts on MLB.com and on the MLB Network.
