HOUSTON 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.
