"After hearing about all of the devastation in New York, I feel that I have to be there to help so many of the people that helped make me feel at home during my first season with the Yankees," Ibañez said.

The benefit, which starts at 7:30 p.m., will feature Jay Black, Jose Feliciano, and fellow emcees Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay and actor Chazz Palminteri. Tickets are available at ticketmaster.com
