Big 12 will donate $200,000 of baseball tournament proceeds to Oklahoma tornado relief

In the wake of the tornado devastation in Oklahoma earlier this week, the Big 12 will donate $200,000 from proceeds of this week’s conference baseball tournament to the America Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.

The Big 12 Tournament started Thursday at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City.

“Our hearts go out to those affected by this terrible tragedy and this donation is one small way to provide relief to a city that has supported our membership so well over many years,” Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said.
