Dodgers Dreamfields

The goal of the Dodgers Dreamfields program is to provide a safe place for youth to conduct positive recreational activity in their own neighborhoods. In partnership with corporations, foundations and local municipalities, LADF builds and refurbishes baseball and softball fields in underserved communities. Dodgers Dreamfields contribute to both community development and youth development by providing youth the opportunity to learn and play the game of baseball and softball while building character and instilling important life lessons. To date LADF has completed 47 Dodgers Dreamfields, with a long-term goal of completing 50.

Key partners of the Dodgers Dreamfields program include the LA84 Foundation, City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks and the County of Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation.

Investment in Dodgers Dreamfields vary depending on the need at each location but typically include:

  • Upgrades to backstops
  • Addition of roofs over dugouts
  • Bench upgrades
  • Irrigation improvements
  • Re-grading to ensure smooth and consistent playing surfaces
  • New infield mix
  • New bases, home plate and pitching rubbers
  • New outfield fencing
  • Renovation of field turf
  • Installation of new sod
  • New signage and scoreboard
