NEW YORK -- The Yankees announced on Friday that they have donated $500,000 to support tornado-relief efforts in the southern U.S.

Of that total, half is going to the Salvation Army, the other half to the Red Cross.

Both organizations are working in the affected areas.

"On behalf of the entire New York Yankees organization, we would like to express our deepest condolences to all those affected by the devastating storms in Alabama and throughout the South," said Jennifer Steinbrenner Swindal, Yankees general partner and vice chairperson.
