    Cleveland Indians All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor visits his former grammar school, Villa Marina Elementary School, to lead a special baseball clinic for approximately 250 students in Gurabo, Puerto Rico, Monday. The Cleveland Indians and the Minnesota Twins will meet Tuesday and Wednesday in a two-game series at Hiram Bithorn Stadium in San Juan.



SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — The Cleveland Indians have donated an additional $37,000 to aid hurricane recovery in Puerto Rico.

In September, the team awarded a playoff share to help recovery efforts on the island, which was decimated by Hurricane Maria and where large areas remain without power. The team’s donation, and $4,000 given by the Cleveland Indians Wives Association on Monday, will go directly to communities where Indians All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor and catcher Roberto Perez grew up.

The Indians are in Puerto Rico to play a two-game series this week against the Minnesota Twins.

Perez and Lindor made trips to Puerto Rico during the offseason, donating time and some of their own money for bottled water and other goods.

Lindor is taking part in a baseball clinic on Monday for kids at his grade school.
