Astros players are pitching in to help alleviate the impact of the coronavirus. 

All-star outfielder George Springer is donating $100,000 to employees at Minute Maid Park who are impacted by the cancelation of events, according to Fox 26's Mark Berman. 

The Houston Food Bank on Saturday announced all-star infielder Alex Bregman is donating 1,000 quarantine food kits to make sure students who depend on free lunches get 28 meals per kit. 

The Astros have been told to remain in West Palm Beach, Florida, the site of spring training, to avoid risks associated with the coronavirus.

Large events across the world have been canceled or postponed. 

Likewise, school districts in Houston have delayed classes for at least two weeks.

The Major League Baseball season is not likely to start before May.
