Tripp, Mike & Quinn Host All-Star Charity Golf Tourney

The fifth annual @UmpsCare All-Star Break Golf Scramble kicks off at Cedarcrest Golf Course in Marysville, Washington. Hometown umpires Tripp Gibson, Mike Muchlinski (Snohomish) and Quinn Wolcott (Tacoma) host the tournament, which fundraises for UMPS CARE Charities' Build-A-Bear Workshop experiences at children's hospitals, big league experiences, and college scholarships for adopted youth.

Said Gibson of spending part of his All-Star break on the golf course for charity, "This is something important, and we’re so passionate about what Umps Care does that we wanted to continue that through the All-Star break."

This is the fifth year of the the All-Star Break Golf Scramble at Cedarcrest, which is a program Gibson began in 2015 in his first season as a member of the MLB umpire staff: "When I got to the majors, this was something I really wanted to be a part of. I guess for me, I’m very passionate about helping our youth, teaching our youth, helping them become good citizens. Giving back is something I learned from my parents, and it’s something I always wanted to do."

This year's Golf Scramble takes place the morning of MLB's All-Star Game, Tuesday, July 9.
