TAMPA , FLORIDA (Central Florida News 13) - In the aftermath of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan, the Tampa Bay Rays will make a $10,000 donation to Save the Children to benefit the Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund.

In addition, during the season-opening series against the Baltimore Orioles (April 1–April 3), volunteers from the Red Cross will collect donations from fans for the disaster relief efforts. The Rays will match up to $15,000 of donations made by fans.

According to estimates made by the Japanese National Police Agency, the earthquake and tsunami have claimed nearly 9,000 lives, with more than 12,000 more people still missing.
