Dodgers Annual ‘Love LA’ Community Tour Returns featuring Freddie Freeman, Trayce Thompson and More

Leading up to next week’s FanFest at Dodger Stadium, the Dodgers will hold their 19th annual community service week, called the Dodgers Love L.A. Community Tour presented by Bank of America. The community tour will include 10 events around the Los Angeles area.

There are too many events to cover adequately here, although you can read all about them in the team’s official press release. But several of the events will include current and former LA players, including:

  • Tuesday, January 31: Freddie Freeman will host a food distribution at the Long Beach Salvation Army for local families in need.
  • Wednesday, February 1: Trayce Thompson and Kirsten Watson will kick off Black History Month by participating in a baseball clinic at the Dodgers’ Dream Field located at Darby Park in Inglewood. They’ll be joined by 300 middle school students from predominantly black schools.
  • Thursday, February 2: In Sylmar, Chris Taylor will join 300 elementary school students at the Discovery Cube to learn about environmental science, health and nutrition, and more. At the same time, in Manhattan Beach, Dave Roberts and Eric Karros will help California Pizza Kitchen’s Chef Paul lead a cooking class with 35 adult participants from the Best Buddies program. That evening, Tony Gonsolin, Alex Vesia, and Evan Phillips will help shop for shoes for 100 local students.
  • Friday, February 3: Miguel Rojas, Phil Bickford, and Ryan Pepiot will work the counter and drive thru at undisclosed Jack in the Box locations.

It should be an outstanding week for the Dodgers and the Los Angeles community, leading up to the return of FanFest.
