28th Annual Cardinals Care Golf Tournament Raises Money for Area Children Participating in MLB’s RBI Program
ST. LOUIS, Mo., May 18, 2017 – Registration is underway for the 28th annual Cardinals Care Ted Savage RBI Golf Classic scheduled for Tuesday, June 6, at the Norman K. Probstein Golf Course in Forest Park.
Former Cardinal outfielder Ted Savage started the tournament in 1990 to help kids in the St. Louis community who participate in the Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) Program. RBI is a Major League Baseball youth outreach program designed to increase participation in baseball among underserved youth, encourage academic achievement and preparation, promote greater inclusion of minorities into the game and teach the value of teamwork.
“The Ted Savage RBI Golf Classic is a day of golf, good times and giving back,” said Michael Hall, Vice President of Community Relations and Executive Director of Cardinals Care. “We hope fans can come out to the course and enjoy a round of golf knowing they’re fostering the growth of young ballplayers on and off the field.”
A number of Cardinals Alumni and St. Louis celebrities will be in attendance to play and meet-and-greet with participants. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start. Following golf, there will be an awards presentation and lunch will be provided courtesy of Pappy’s Smokehouse BBQ.
