Thursday, Los Angeles Angels superstar first baseman Albert Pujols hosted the Tenth Annual Albert Pujols Celebrity Golf Classic at the Trump National Golf Course in the ritzy Los Angeles County beachfront community of Rancho Palos Verdes (CA). The event, held for the first time in Southern California, raises money for the many charitable endeavors of the Pujols Family Foundation.
Pujols was joined by Angel teammates Jared Weaver, Ervin Santana, LaTroy Hawkins, Erick Aybar, Bobby Wilson and Scott Downs, as well as former Halo greats Rod Carew and Jim Edmonds.
The day of golf was also attended by a group of Hollywood luminaries including George Lopez, Benjamin Bratt, Joe Mantegna, John C. McGinley, Rob Riggle, Ron Perlman and Cheech Marin.
From the world of broadcasting, ESPN’s Steve Levy (who served as master of ceremonies), FOX’s Curt Menefee, LA of Anaheim broadcaster Jose Mota and LA Kings analyst Jim Fox made appearances at the affair.
