About League of Dreams

The League of Dreams is a non-profit sports league for children with disabilities ages 5 to 22. We provide baseball (spring), bowling (summer) and basketball (fall). We also offer swim lessons. Thanks to the support of our many donors and community members we have been able to make the League of Dreams programs free. To qualify, the child must have an IEP on file with the school or have a medical diagnosis from a licensed physician.

Brent Morel's Charity

Brent Morel, Bakersfield native and 3rd baseman for the Chicago White Sox, has named the League of Dreams his official charity. Morel, a graduate from Centennial High School, grew up playing baseball on the fields at fruitvale Norris Park where the League of Dreams new field, Abilities Field, is located.

With the love for the game, Morel wanted to give back, and allow the kids that normally wouldn’t have a chance to play, an opportunity to experience what he got to as a child. Morel hosts an annual Gala event in January which serves as the primary fundraiser for the league and has allowed every child to play for free.
