Four minor league teams located in South Carolina have agreed to join forces to help raise money for victims of historic flooding in the state that left at least 11 people dead and hundreds more homeless or without power and drinking water.
More than 2 feet of rain have fallen since Friday in parts of South Carolina, which avoided a hit from Hurricane Joaquin but experienced record rainfall and flooding.
In response, the Charleston RiverDogs, Columbia Fireflies, Greenville Drive and Myrtle Beach Pelicans announced Tuesday that they have created a joint GoFundMe page, raising funds for the American Red Cross of the Palmetto SC Region.
Each of the four clubs and Minor League Baseball Charities will be contributing $2,500 to the relief efforts. The fundraising goal is $100,000.
