Chris Taylor is a unique type of baseball player in that he possesses tremendous power and can play multiple positions on the field.
The Los Angeles Dodgers super utilityman has been a staple of the team since his arrival in 2016 after two seasons with the Seattle Mariners.
But beyond his contributions on the field, Taylor also has been very active in the Los Angeles community with his “CT3 Foundation.”
Taylor’s foundation, called “Driving For Hope”, puts on golf events to help raise money for children with cancer.
Taylor stopped by MLB Network to discuss his next event which will occur on Thursday, January 12.

The veteran utilityman revealed that this will be the foundation’s first event in Los Angeles, with the previous two events taking place in Virginia Beach, where Taylor grew up.
The event will feature some of Taylor’s current and former Dodgers teammates.
Taylor also mentioned that at the end of the night, country artist and avid Dodgers fan Brett Young will be performing.
The Dodgers star began has foundation in 2017 after discovering that his childhood best friend Kyle Profilet had been diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a bone-related cancer in his right leg.
Sadly, Kyle ultimately passed away after a battle that lasted over two years.
The same tragic fate befell another one of his closest friends in Dalton Fox.
Taylor’s girlfriend also lost a childhood friend to osteosarcoma.
The 32-year-old felt it was important to find a way to cure this rare form of cancer.
And so, Taylor and his foundation will have their first Los Angeles event next week.
