Jays Care Foundation Hosts Golf Tournament

Jays Care Foundation Hosts Golf Tournament

Toronto Blue Jays players spent their off day participating in the Jays Care Foundation's 18th annual Charity Golf Classic.

Known for his home run swing, Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista admitted that his golf swing could use some work. Bautista, who will start for the American League in the 2013 MLB All-Star Game, was still happy to participate. "The Blue Jays do a great number of things throughout Canada with Jays Care Foundation. I'm glad to be a part of it and help out.”

Tournament participants were given the opportunity to play alongside both current and former players – a rare situation for any fan.

"The tournament is an opportunity to use the platform of Major League Baseball to go beyond the baseball field," R.A. Dickey said. "It would be a tragedy if all we were ever known for was being a baseball player."

While there were many birdies captured during the tournament, the most impressive birds on the course were the Blue Jays. The event generated more than $650,000 towards communities across Canada.
