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

In preparation for the 2024 MLB season, El Modena High School in Orange, California, unveiled a new addition to its campus that holds great significance for Los Angeles Dodgers star Freddie Freeman. The school dedicated the Freddie Freeman Clubhouse, which was made possible through a generous $500,000 donation from the former MVP himself.

The clubhouse spans 1,440 square feet and includes a locker room, a team meeting area equipped with monitors, a coaches’ office, and expanded batting cages. Freeman and the Dodgers shared images of the facility on Instagram, showcasing the impressive locker room and a large mural depicting Freeman in his Vanguard uniform at El Modena High School.

The total cost of the project amounted to $1.6 million, with Freeman’s donation standing as the largest sum ever contributed by an individual private donor in Orange Unified School District history. The district chipped in the remaining $1.1 million to make Freeman’s vision come to fruition.

During his time at El Modena High School, Freeman excelled in varsity baseball both as a batter and pitcher. His impressive stats included a .417 batting average with five home runs and 10 stolen bases while pitching he had six wins with an ERA of 1.27 and 59 strikeouts in 44 innings. Recognized as Orange County Register’s Player of the Year in 2007, Freeman’s talent led him to be selected by Atlanta Braves in second round of draft that year.

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