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

The Freddie Freeman Clubhouse at El Modena High School in Orange, California is a significant milestone for the school’s baseball program. The new facility, which spans 1,440 square feet, was made possible in part by a generous $500,000 donation from the former MVP himself.

The clubhouse 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 the remaining $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. His impressive stats included a .417 batting average with five home runs and 10 stolen bases along with a 6-1 pitching record carrying a 1.27 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 44 innings. He was recognized as the Orange County Register’s Player of the Year in 2007 which led to his selection by the Atlanta Braves in the second round of the draft that year.

El Modena’s baseball team has seen success in recent seasons with a 14-12-1 record last year following an impressive 22-10 showing prior to this dedication ceremony marking their latest milestone honoring one of their most celebrated alumni.
