The Los Angeles Dodgers are taking Hawaii by storm this week to support the Kemoeatu Brothers Foundation. Dodger youngsters Corey Seager and Joc Pederson are also pairing up with Hawaii football players to benefit Hawaii’s keiki.
The players will be hosting the baseball camp and home run derby on Wednesday and Thursday at Mid Pac. The camp includes youth from the ages of 8-14 while the home run derby is open to players of any age.

According to Taryn Hatcher from Hawaii News Now, both Dodger players are enjoying the Hawaii locals.
“I remember going to camps when I was young and looking up to the people that were there,” said Seager. “So, it’s kind of nice to be in that role and guide these kids and have fun with it at the same time.”
“You know, it means a lot to be able to give back and be in the position Corey and I are in,” said Pederson. “So, to come here and help the kids and see a smile on their face is priceless and it’s all going to a great cause.”
The Kemoeatu Brother Foundations funds to improve the lives of underprivileged children in Hawaii.
It is great to see the Dodgers to pick various charities around the world and focus on youth baseball organizations. After all of this, it will be time to focus on the 2017 season.
