San Bernardino park gets three Dodger Dreamfields

Three baseball fields at San Bernardino’s Blair Park have undergone a $1.7 million renovation, thanks to an assist from the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.

The Dodger Dreamfield upgrades, unveiled during a ceremony May 18, include new playing surfaces, pitching mounds, bullpens, enclosed fields, improved dugouts and irrigation systems, and LED scoreboards built to resemble the Dodger Stadium scoreboards according to a statement on the city’s website.

Dodgers’ third base coach Dino Ebel, a Barstow native and alumnus of San Bernardino Valley College, attended the ceremony, along with San Bernardino Mayor Helen Tran, council member Ben Reynoso and San Bernardino County Supervisor Joe Baca Jr.

Several little leaguers participated in a baseball and softball clinic and were treated to free Dodger Dogs.

“I love this park so much,” Reynoso said in the statement. “I probably spent too much time here as a kid. To see these brand-new baseball fields here is an incredible gift to the residents of San Bernardino.”

San Manuel contributed $1.4 million to the project.

The Blair Park fields are the latest diamonds either built or restored by the Dodgers Foundation, the team’s charity arm, since 2003.
