In the run-up to the start of the 2024 MLB season, 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 new 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 both as a batter and a pitcher. His impressive stats included a .417 batting average with five home runs and 10 stolen bases while also boasting an impressive pitching record of 6-1 carrying an ERA of 1.27 and striking out 59 batters in just 44 innings. Recognized as Orange County Register’s Player of the Year in 2007, Freeman’s talent led to his selection by Atlanta Braves in second round of draft that year.

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 $1.1 million to make Freeman’s vision become reality for this clubhouse dedication that marks significant milestone for school and its baseball program honoring one of its most celebrated alumni.
