Dominican Golf: Albert Pujols to host celebrity golf tournament

Dominican baseball player Albert Pujols is the best player in the game by most accounts. He moved to the west coast this year for the first time in his career. This is a major loss for his old team the Cardinals, and major addition for the Angels. But it is perhaps an even bigger loss for the city of Saint Louis.

His move to Los Angeles will also affect his charitable givings. Albert is well known to be at the head of the Pujols Family Foundation, a non-profit that contributes to families of children with Down syndrome and helps poverty-stricken families in his native Dominican Republic.

Albert is a legend in Saint Louis both for his on-field work, and for his charitable work.

The Pujols Family Foundation has hosted a golf tournament for the last nine years in the Saint Louis area, but this year his annual golf tournament will be taking place in Southern California at the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

Albert is excited to host the tournament and all his celebrity friends:
"We are excited to show the people of Southern California what the Pujols Family Foundation is all about," Pujols said in a statement. "This is a great day for the Foundation, and to host our event at a course like Trump National is pretty special."

The tournament will take place on July 26th and all proceeds benefit the Pujols Family Foundation. Visit the charity's website for more information:
