MLB players donating up to $1M to Haiti relief

Major League Baseball players are pledging to donate up to $1 million to Haitian earthquake relief efforts.
The Major League Baseball Players Association says it is making a pair of $100,000 contributions to Esperanza International and Medicines for Humanity through the Major League Baseball Players Trust. The trust will give grants for the remainder of the money over the next five years.
New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson, the trust chair, said on Thursday that players "want to do our part to support the humanitarian efforts."
The MLBPA also is part of "One Team 4 Haiti," a joint relief effort with its counterparts from the NFL, NBA and NHL. National League MVP Albert Pujols and NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum have recorded public service announcements.
