Supporting a Worthy Cause with Tim Salmon

June 26, 2012 | By Christopher Mazurk


My “love of the game” began when I was very young. I fondly remember trips to the “Big A” with my dad. Learning to score a game with pencil and paper, mowing through Cracker Jacks, filling my mouth with an entire packet of Big League Chew, eating peanuts just to throw the shells on the ground and finishing bag after bag of sunflower seeds. I grew up loving baseball and, almost as importantly, I grew up loving the Angels.

Fast forward many, many…many many many years of wonderful but short seasons to 2002. The most exhilarating post-season of any sport…ever. The Angels won the World Series in game seven. All of Orange County erupted in celebration. They were a team of all-stars that year but for most fans one player truly highlighted the heart and soul of the Angels: Tim Salmon. A clutch performance in Game 2, a phenomenal .346 series batting average and ten years on the team. Watching Tim Salmon and the Angels secure the Championship was a milestone in my life to say the least.

So, you can probably imagine how excited I was the day I found out I was going to be the Project Manager for the new Tim Salmon Foundation website. To put a cherry on top, the foundation supports a number of charities which, among other things, assist abused and at-risk children. To-date they’ve raised over $975,000! The chief fundraising venue is the annual Tim Salmon Golf Classic. This, the 14th year (coincidentally, the number of years Tim Salmon played for the Angels) will see the tournament take place at the world-renowned Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club, benefitting Laurel House and Concept 7.

The entire experience has been a highlight in my career as a website developer. The wildly talented team here at GoldenComm really stepped up to created a site we’re proud to deliver to a great guy who is championing such a worthy cause!
