"Our leagues and clubs are like family and we come to each other's aid in times of crisis," said Pat O'Conner, President of Minor League Baseball.

Hopefully, our efforts, combined with those of our leagues and clubs, will expedite the recovery of our clubs and their communities that were affected by Hurricane Sandy."
