What is your fondest baseball memory? Brooks Robinson making a spectacular diving stop at third base? Bill Mazeroski's World Series-winning home run? Bobby Thomson's dramatic "Shot Heard Around the World?"
The Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association has created the Swing with the Legends Golf Series to bring back those memories while raising money for important charitable causes nationwide.
Since 1984, the MLBPAA has staged a series of golf events featuring some of the greatest names to ever play the game. The roster of superstars who have participated in the golf series represent a broad spectrum of Hall of Famers, All-Stars, Gold Glove Award winners, former Major League heroes and characters of the game such as Stan Musial, George Brett, Harmon Killebrew, Robin Yount, Jim "Mudcat" Grant, Tom Seaver, Vida Blue, Goose Gossage, Phil Niekro, Jim Palmer and many others. With this lineup it's easy to see why we call the golf series, "Swing with the Legends."
Since the inception of the golf series in 1984, more than $70 million has been raised for a variety of charities. Those benefiting from "Swing with the Legends" have included Children's Hospital, American Diabetes, Boys and Girls Clubs, Cystic Fibrosis, Special Olympics, Leukemia Society of America, Meals on Wheels, The Salvation Army, Little League Baseball and many others. These first-class events are held at some of the nation's premier golf courses and provide each participant with a fun-filled weekend with their favorite baseball stars of yesterday. Activities include a pre-event reception, lunch, round of golf, post-tournament award ceremony and baseball memorabilia auction.
