HOUSTON -- The Houston Astros will donate $1 million to help with Hurricane Ike relief efforts.
Astros owner Drayton McLane, the Astros in Action Foundation and
Houston players and staff will donate the funds to the Greater
Houston Community Foundation to benefit a hurricane relief fund
that was established by Houston mayor Bill White.
McLane said in a statement that the team cares deeply about its
fans and community.
He said he hopes the donation will assist in what will be a very
difficult and lengthy recovery process.
Hurricane Ike and its remnants are blamed for more than 50
deaths, including 17 in Texas.
