From High School Star to MLB MVP: El Modena Unveils Freddie Freeman Clubhouse

Freddie Freeman’s Clubhouse Unveiled at El Modena High School after Generous $500k Donation from Star Player

In preparation for the start of the 2024 MLB season, El Modena High School in Orange, California has unveiled a new addition to their facilities: the Freddie Freeman Clubhouse. This project was made possible in part by a generous $500,000 donation from Freeman himself, the 2020 MVP, to the school’s baseball program. The clubhouse spans 1,440 square feet and features amenities such as a locker room, team meeting space with monitors, a coaches’ office, and expanded batting cages.

Freeman excelled both at the plate and on the mound during his time at El Modena High School. His impressive stats included a .417 batting average with five home runs and 10 stolen bases, along with a 6-1 record on the mound, a 1.27 ERA, and 59 strikeouts in 44 innings pitched. Recognized as the Orange County Register’s Player of the Year in 2007, Freeman was subsequently drafted in the second round by the Atlanta Braves.

In recent seasons, El Modena has achieved varying levels of success on the baseball field. However, their new Freddie Freeman Clubhouse stands as a symbol of Freeman’s dedication and commitment to his alma mater and the community that supported his early baseball career.
