Current and past players from Major League Baseball will gather Saturday, Dec. 15 at the Binks Forest Golf Club in Wellington to tee off at noon in the first-ever Salty Classic 2012 Golf Tournament.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia, a former Royal Palm Beach High School star and current catcher for the Boston Red Sox, is hosting the event that will benefit the Wounded Warriors Project and Athletes Advantage.
“I’m very honored to be able to conduct this event in my home community to support the veterans who have given so much to this great country and to also assist kids that need scholarship help to Athletes Advantage,” Saltalamacchia said. “This event will be a kickoff to many more in the future.”
Among the stars invited to participate are Eric Hosner, Sean Burnett, Scott Maine, Sam Fuld, Jose Iglesias, Mike Napoli, Andrew Miller, Marco Scutaro, Johnny Damon, Jason Varitek, Alex Cobb, Craig Breslow and more.
The $150 donation per player provides a playing spot in the scramble-format golf tournament, a players goody bag, dinner afterward and a raffle plus memorabilia auction.
Each participant will also receive a replay pass good at Binks Forest Golf Club for another 18 hole round of golf.
