Attending The 2017 Toby Hall Spring Training Celebrity Golf Classic

Every year, former MLB catcher Toby Hall puts on an incredible charity event, which raises IMG_4723money for incredible organizations that allow under-privelaged children play baseball.

Friday, I covered the 2017 classic. The day started off with registration at Inverness Hall in Innisbrook, which is a beautiful golf course in Palm Harbor, Florida.

I traditionally stay for the entire event, but due to exams, I could only stay for a portion of the day. While I was there, I took a look at some of the great items being sold, which included waterproof speakers, golf gloves, and portable chargers. The food for the event was catered by P.F. Chang’s, which excited many of the hungry golfers. IMG_3094

I didn’t expect to see many golfers there until later in the day, but many were anxious to arrive early. The event starts at 11, but there were very many people there when I initially arrived at 10. After chatting with some people walking around, I found that the common theme is that they are happy to play for the charitable aspect of the event. There were screens showing pictures from The Miracle League, which is an incredible foundation that gives disabled and handicapped children and adults the chance to play baseball.

In conclusion, The Foundation really does incredible things and makes a positive impact on the community. It may be a year away, but I am already looking forwards to the 2018 Toby Hall Spring Training Celebrity Golf Classic.
