The tournament teeing off on Saturday February the 7th at 7:30 am will be played on the Teeth of the Dog in a “Scramble” format, with prizes for individuals and teams.
With so many baseball legends expected to play, each team of 4 will consist of at least one former (or current) baseball player – you chance to tee off alongside these amazing baseball heros!
Last year, the baseball legend Teodoro Higuera and his family were crowned the champions of the INMORTALES golf tournament (click here to read the full story), but this year he will not be playing, so we will have to choose very carefully our favorite player for this year.
The complete list of baseball heros who are expected to play in the tournament are as follows:
- Manny Acta
- José Offerman
- Rob Manfred
- Jeff Idelson
- Omar Moreno
- Bert Campaneris
- José Bautista
- Moisés Alou
- Ozzie Guillen
- Nomar Garcíaparra

We look forward to seeing you on the tees and on the greens for this incredible golf tournament!
