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

El Modena High School in Orange, California, announced the dedication of a new addition that holds special significance for Los Angeles Dodgers star Freddie Freeman. The school unveiled the 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.

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 a reality.

Freeman excelled in varsity baseball at El Modena High School during his time there. He had impressive stats as both a batter and pitcher while playing for them. His batting average was .417 with five home runs and 10 stolen bases while he pitched six wins carrying a 1.27 ERA and struck out 59 batters in 44 innings. He was named Orange County Register’s Player of the Year in 2007 due to his talent which led him to be selected by the Atlanta Braves in the second round of the draft that year.

El Modena’s baseball team has had recent successes with their record being 14-12-1 last year following their strong performance of 22-10 earlier this season which is significant milestone for their school and its baseball program honoring one of its most celebrated alumni
