FIVE DOWN, THREE TO GO
Dodgers Dreamfield at Pan Pacific Rec Center
Los Angeles - The Department of Recreation and Parks (RAP) celebrated the opening of the twelfth Dodgers Dreamfield in the City of Los Angeles on Saturday, July 23, 2011. Pan Pacific's Dreamfield was made possible through a partnership between RAP and The Dodgers Dream Foundation and the LA84 Foundation. RAP General Manager Jon Kirk Mukri, Councilmember Tom LaBonge (4th District), the Dodger's Senior Vice President Howard Sunkin and LA84 Foundation's Vice President Patrick Escobar were all on hand to celebrate the fifth Dodgers Dreamfield to be built in 2011 in Los Angeles.
Dodger pitcher Javy Guerra and former Dodgers Tommy Davis, Wes Parker, Kenny Landreaux and Bobby Castillo helped celebrate the opening of the new facility and ran clinics after the ceremony for the Pan Pacific baseball players.
Renovations to the new field include refurbished backstop, fencing, outfield and infield turf. New dugout roofs, irrigation system, and infield/outfield transition turn, solar powered scoreboard, scoreboard signage and field signage were also added.
The Pan Pacific Dodgers Dreamfield is the fifth of eight fields to be dedicated in the City of Los Angeles in 2011. At the beginning of this year, the Dodgers Dream Foundation and LA84 Foundation announced a commitment to build Dreamfields at eight RAP facilities. Dodger Dreamfields already completed this year are Northridge RC, Martin Luther King, Jr. RC, Pecan RC and Lemon Grove RC. The three remaining fields that are set to be dedicated by the end of the year are Valley Plaza RC, Ritchie Valens RC and Harbor City RC.
The Pan Pacific Dodgers Dreamfield is located at 7600 Beverly Blvd in Los Angeles 90036.
