We are excited to announce our second Annual Fundraising Event, The POSITIVE IMPACT AWARDS, honoring Ten (10) Triple-Impact Competitor® student-athletes with college scholarships. These are student-athletes who make themselves, their teammates and the game better. In some cases they are the first in their family to go to college. This is our third year of providing college scholarships to student-athletes in Southern California.

Through their Dodgers Dreamfields, Dodgers RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities) and LA Reads programs, LADF uses the power of baseball to increase access to education, literacy, health, wellness and recreational resources in underserved communities. PCA-LA has certified over 375 Dodgers RBI Coaches as a Double-Goal Coach® as well as working with RBI Leaders, parents and athletes.
