Pujols announces celebrity golf tournament
ANAHEIM -- Angels first baseman Albert Pujols will host his 10th Celebrity Golf Classic -- and first on the West Coast -- at Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., on July 26, the Pujols Family Foundation announced Wednesday.

A field of 180 golfers is expected to attend, making up 36 groups of five, each of which will be paired with a celebrity. Previous celebrity guests have included Shaquille O'Neal, Bobby Knight, Mike Piazza, Bo Jackson, Mark McGwire, Ozzie Smith and John Smoltz, among others.

"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 shotgun start will take place at 10 a.m. PT, followed by a cocktail hour and dinner program, which will include a live and silent auction. All proceeds will benefit the Pujols Family Foundation, which provides assistance to orphans in the Dominican Republic as well as people suffering with Down syndrome.
