Money for Storm Victims
Tulsa, OK – Drillers donating money to storm victims
TULSA, Okla. (AP) The Tulsa Drillers are joining other Minor League Baseball teams in helping raise funds for people affected by devastating floods and tornadoes in the south.
Team officials say 15 percent of the Drillers' online merchandise sales from May 16 to May 30 will be donated to Minor League Baseball Charities and distributed to relief organizations.
The money raised as part of the 15 For 15 program will go to affected cities that have Minor League Baseball teams.
Those cities include Huntsville and Birmingham, Ala., and Memphis, Tenn.
