Indians donated playoff share to Puerto Rico's recovery from Hurricane Maria

The Cleveland Indians have donated $37,000 for hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

The Indians will present the check to Delgado on Tuesday when they begin their two-game series against the Minnesota Twins in San Juan. The team donated a playoff share a year ago to aid hurricane relief.

In September, the team made a decision to donate a playoff share to relief efforts on the island, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria and where large areas remain without power.

Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor and catcher Roberto Perez both grew up in Puerto Rico. "That's one of things that I probably get most proud about, is the guys want to give back and share". Lindor held an event at his former school Monday, where he presented a check to fund the school's sports programs and fix its fields.

Both players visited Puerto Rico during the offseason to donate their own time and money as part of relief efforts.

Money also went to Extra Bases, Inc.
