Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor, left, and right fielder Jay Bruce celebrate after the Indians defeated the New York Yankees 6-2 in a baseball game, Monday, Aug. 28, 2017, at Yankee Stadium in New York.
The team is accepting donations through Cleveland Indians Charities until Sept. 10 with all the money going to nonprofit organizations in Southeast Texas, which has been devastated by the storm and flooding.
Bruce, who recently joined the Indians after being acquired in a trade from the New York Mets, is from Beaumont, Texas.
The massive storm, which initially made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane, has dumped more than 50 inches of rain in some areas around Houston, paralyzing the nation's fourth-largest city.
More than 17,000 people have sought refuge in Texas shelters, the American Red Cross said.
