More than 50 current and former major leaguer baseball players will roll up their sleeves to help displaced flood victims return home, when they visit the Habitat for Humanity warehouse in Dallas to frame two houses for victims of the Houston floods caused by Hurricane Harvey. 

Among of the former and current players involved in the project is former Rangers catcher and Hall of Famer Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez and American League MVP Jose Altuve of the World Series champion Houston Astros.

When complete, the structures will be trucked to their Houston locations where they will be prepared for occupancy in spring 2018.

While at the Dallas warehouse, the players and their families will also assemble holiday gift packages for 177 Houston Habitat for Humanity families who lost their homes to the flooding.

Later that evening, the Players Trust will host a fund-raising dinner and auction at the Four Seasons Resort in Las Colinas to benefit victims of the recent disasters that have devastated areas across the Americas.
