Jackie Robinson Stadium in Compton will be refurbished in a partnership involving the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation and the charitable organization operated by Dodger pitching star Clayton Kershaw and his wife Ellen.

The partnership involving Kershaw’s Challenge will also include the construction of a new “Field 42” at Gonzales Park, site of Jackie Robinson Stadium.

Construction will begin later this year on the 52nd and 53rd Dodgers Dreamfields, continuing the LADF’s commitment to build 75 Dodgers Dreamfields by 2033, the 75th anniversary of the team’s move to Los Angeles.

The renovation of Jackie Robinson Stadium will include upgrades to the field, outfield fence, dugouts, scoreboard, backstop, lighting, bathrooms/locker room facilities, and spectator viewing areas.

The new Field 42 will serve youth baseball and softball players ages 5-12
