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

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.

Freeman’s donation stands as the largest sum ever contributed by an individual private donor in Orange Unified School District history. The district chipped in an additional $1.1 million to make Freeman’s vision a reality. During his time at El Modena, Freeman excelled in varsity baseball both as a batter and pitcher. He was recognized as Orange County Register Player of the Year in 2007 and was later drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the second round that year.

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