Freddie Freeman Clubhouse revealed at El Modena following generous $500k donation to alma mater

From High School Diamond to Major League Dugout: El Modena’s New Clubhouse Honors Dodgers Star Freddie Freeman

As the 2024 MLB season approaches, El Modena High School in Orange, California, unveiled a new addition that holds special significance for Los Angeles Dodgers star Freddie Freeman. The school revealed the new Freddie Freeman Clubhouse, made possible in part by a generous $500,000 donation from the former MVP himself.

The clubhouse spans 1,440 square feet and features a locker room, a team meeting area equipped with monitors, a coaches’ office, and expanded batting cages. The Dodgers and Freeman shared images of the facility on Instagram, showcasing the locker room and a large mural depicting Freeman in the school’s Vanguard uniform, complete with a list of his achievements as reported by the Orange County Register.

During his time at El Modena, Freeman excelled in varsity baseball as both a batter and pitcher. His impressive stats included a .417 batting average with five home runs and 10 stolen bases along with a 6-1 pitching record carrying a 1.27 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 44 innings. Recognized as the Orange County Register’s Player of the Year in 2007, Freeman’s talent led to his selection by the Atlanta Braves in the second round of the draft that year.

El Modena’s baseball team has seen success in recent seasons with a 14-12-1 record last year following an impressive 22-10 showing two years prior. This clubhouse dedication marks a significant milestone for the school and its baseball program as it honors the legacy of one of its most celebrated alumni.
