MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins are donating $25,000 to relief efforts in Japan.

The Twins say they are partnering with Feed My Starving Children and that the $25,000 will pay for more than 100,000 meals for victims of the earthquake and tsunami.

The Twins’ wives organization has pledged an additional $4,000.

The devastation hit close to him with Twins second baseman Tsuyoshi Nishioka. The Twins signed him from the Japanese leagues this winter. Nishioka will be the first Japanese player to play for the Twins in the major leagues.

Nishioka has said his family was not hurt in the disaster.

Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit that works with other organizations in Japan and throughout the world to feed hungry children.
