Curtis Wilkerson played for the Rangers from 1983-88. For four of those seasons, he played infield defense behind a right-handed pitcher named José Guzmán. Though both retired from playing baseball a long time ago, the bonds formed as teammates linger. Those ties had a lot to do with why Wilkerson and a number of other former Rangers played a different game at the Putting for a Purpose Golf Tournament Monday. The event benefitted the Guzmán 23 Foundation, which helps victims of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and those patients’ families.
In this video interview, you’ll find out about why Wilkerson and his ex-teammates wanted to play the tournament, and also how his foursome did.
