BOGOTA, COLOMBIA (AP) - World Series MVP Edgar Renteria has asked that a celebration in his honor be called off in his home country, with the money donated to Colombia flood victims.

Renteria led the San Francisco Giants to the World Series title last week. The shortstop made his request about the tribute from Miami on Tuesday. He is expected to arrive Thursday in Barranquilla, where his family lives.

Renteria says there are “more important things back home” and it’s critical to tend to the needs of those left homeless by the recent flooding.

Renteria is considering his baseball future after the Giants declined to exercise their option on his $9.5 million contract.
