The American Century Championship Golf is a celebrity golf tournament that raises funds for local and national charities. This year, the tournament featured a purse of $600,000, and its official national beneficiary was the Stowers Medical Institute for Medical Research, a 550-person basic biomedical research organization focused on the development of innovative approaches to treat, diagnose and prevent disease.
In January 2017, his first year of eligibility, Rodriguez was one of three players voted into the baseball Hall of Fame. In addition to two tours with the Texas Rangers, the catcher played for the Florida Marlins, Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, Houston Astros and Washington Nationals. He has played in two World Series, one with the world champion Florida Marlins in 2003 and the other for the Detroit Tigers in 2006.
