Yankees pledge $500K to support Sandy relief
NEW YORK -- The Yankees have announced that they will donate $500,000 to the American Red Cross to support the relief efforts in the Tri-State area associated with Hurricane Sandy.

"The damage and destruction to the Tri-State area caused by Hurricane Sandy is daunting, but we have seen the great resiliency of this region before," said Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner.

"As a neighbor and community member, the Yankees embrace our role of stepping forward and assisting the American Red Cross, which comes to the aid of so many people through their tireless efforts."

The deadly, devastating storm flooded streets and tunnels in the New York area, halting mass transit and cutting power to millions of homes and businesses.
