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. It's the first Major League Baseball games in Puerto Rico since 2010.

The players chose to put aside one playoff share to donate from their September payout.

In September, the team awarded a playoff share to help recovery efforts on the island, which was decimated by Hurricane Maria and where large areas remain without power. While on the island, Lindor stopped at his former grammar school on Monday to present a check meant to refurbish the school's sports program and play fields. 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.

Perez and Lindor made trips to Puerto Rico during the offseason, donating time and some of their own money for bottled water and other goods.

The Cleveland Indians Wives Association also donated money, presenting $4,000 to abused women in Puerto Rico.
