Dedication of Pecan's Dodgers Dreamfield

East Los Angeles - Recreation and Parks celebrated the opening of the tenth Dodgers Dreamfield in the City of Los Angeles on Saturday, May 14, 2011. Former Dodgers Bobby Castillo, Tommy Davis, Al Downing, Kenny Landreaux and Wes Parker, along with current Dodger pitcher Kenley Jansen, were all on hand to help celebrate the opening of the new field at Pecan Recreation Center in Boyle Heights.

Renovations to the new field included re-grading of the infield, new sod in the outfield, refurbished fencing and new dugout roofing, batting cage, outfield wind screen, LED scoreboard and signage.

The new Dodgers Dreamfield at Pecan is the third field the Department has dedicated in 2011. At the beginning of this year, the Dodgers Dream Foundation in partnership with the LA84 Foundation announced a new commitment to build Dreamfields at eight Recreation and Parks facilities. The five remaining locations that will receive Dreamfields are Pan Pacific RC, Ritchie Valens RC, Lemon Grove RC, Harbor City RC and Valley Plaza RC.

Pecan Recreation Center is located at 145 South Pecan Street in Los Angeles 90033.
