New Freddie Freeman Clubhouse Unveiled at El Modena High School: Inspiring Future Baseball Stars

Freddie Freeman’s Clubhouse Unveiled at El Modena High School after Generous $500k Donation from Star Player

As the 2024 MLB season gets underway, El Modena High School in Orange, California, where Los Angeles Dodgers star first baseman Freddie Freeman attended, unveiled a new addition to their facilities – the Freddie Freeman Clubhouse. This project was made possible thanks to a $500,000 donation from Freeman himself, the 2020 MVP, to the school’s baseball program. The clubhouse spans 1,440 square feet and features amenities such as a locker room, team meeting space with monitors, a coaches’ office, and expanded batting cages.

Pictures shared by the Dodgers and Freeman on Instagram offer a glimpse into the clubhouse’s interior design. The mural in the center of the building honors Freeman’s achievements and is one of several murals that adorn the walls of El Modena High School. During his time at El Modena High School, Freeman excelled both at bat and on the mound. He played varsity baseball for two seasons and had impressive stats such as a .417 batting average with five home runs and 10 stolen bases while also boasting a 6-1 record on the mound with a 1.27 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 44 innings pitched. His accomplishments earned him recognition as Orange County Register’s Player of the Year in 2007 before being drafted by Atlanta Braves in the second round.
