DODGERS DREAMFIELDS


Tommy Davis gives hitting tips at the dedication of the Dodgers Dreamfield at Highland Park on April 20, 2013.

The Dodgers Dreamfields program is one of the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation's signature initiatives and its goal is to provide baseball fields where youngsters can learn the game of baseball in an organized program that is administered by the City or County in a safe environment while learning the importance of playing team sports and key characteristics like sportsmanship, ethics and fair play.

As of November 2013, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation has completed 30 Dreamfields, with a long-term goal of completing 50 Dreamfields. Key partners of the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation on the Dreamfields program include the LA84 Foundation, City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks and the County of Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation.

The investment in these new Dreamfields varies depending on each location's need, but typically include: upgrades to the backstops, the addition of roofs over the dugouts, bench upgrades, irrigation improvements, re-grading to insure smooth and consistent playing surfaces, renovation of field turf or, where necessary, installation of new sod and a new scoreboard.
