The Dodgers Dreamfields program is one of the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation’s cornerstone programs under its Sports + Recreation pillar. The goal of the Dodgers Dreamfields program is to provide baseball and softball fields where youngsters can learn the game of baseball in an organized program that is administered by the City or County in a safe environment while learning the importance of playing team sports and key characteristics like sportsmanship, ethics and fair play.
As of September 2016, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation has completed 44 fields, with a long-term goal of completing 50 Dreamfields. Key partners of the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation on the 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 these new Dreamfields varies depending on the need at each location, but typically include: upgrades to the backstops, addition of roofs over the dugouts, bench upgrades, irrigation improvements, re-grading to insure smooth and consistent playing surfaces, new infield mix, new bases, home plate and pitching rubbers, new outfield fencing, renovation of field turf or, where necessary, installation of new sod, new signage and a new scoreboard.
