“I’m very thankful for the support the Toronto Blue Jays continue to provide the Hall of Fame,” said Scott Crawford, the Canadian ball hall’s director of operations. “With the addition of these three Blue Jays legends, I think we have one of the best rosters of celebrities we’ve ever had for this event.”

Former Montreal Expos Billy Atkinson, Larry Landreth and Derek Aucoin will also participate, as well as ex-Jay Paul Spoljaric, onetime Chicago Cub John Upham, Olympians John Lockwood and Dave Davidson renowned singer and actor Michael Burgess, former NHLers Terry Crisp and Mark Bell, current Jays broadcaster Mike Wilner and retired NHL official Bruce Hood
There’s still room to register your foursome in the tournament, but spaces are filling up quickly. The cost is $1,250 per foursome and that includes 18 holes of golf, a continental breakfast, lunch, a supper banquet, hole sponsorship and the opportunity to golf with a celebrity.
Individual golfers can also register for $250. That fee includes the same perks as a foursome, with the exception of a hole sponsorship. If you aren’t a golfer, you can purchase a ticket to the banquet only for $60.
Proceeds raised will go towards the completion of the new ball field on the Hall’s site and to the Hall’s KIDS ON DECK program, which uses baseball as a medium to teach cultural awareness and social justice to boys and girls.
If you can’t play in the tournament, there are several other ways to support the event, including hole sponsorships.
