That was kind of the attitude.”Clayton Kershaw remembers the converted Naval barracks that the Dodgers’ players called home six weeks a year.“You come in and it’s just these lines of dorms,” Kershaw said. “It’s like a motel where the doors open on the outside, but the rooms aren’t bad. We had to stay six to a room sometimes, which isn’t great, but it was great. You’re in your own little baseball world.” Years of talks culminated when MLB took operational control of Historic Dodgertown on Jan. 2. Tuesday, its new name was revealed: The Jackie Robinson Training Complex. Commissioner Rob Manfred flew in from New York to announce the change. Peter O’Malley and his sister, Terry O’Malley Seidler, flew in from California. Jackie Robinson’s family – wife Rachel, daughter Sharon, son David – flew in from all over; David Robinson lives in Africa.Along with the new name came a new mission statement. MLB dedicated the facility as “a year-round hub of amateur development initiatives and events designed to diversify and strengthen the talent pipelines of baseball and softball.” A preliminary slate of five summer events was announced. Former major league players and coaches will work with participants during at least one event, the Hank Aaron Invitational, from July 21-Aug. 2. The league will not charge players and their families for participating – a deliberate response to the expensive travel ball circuit that typically excludes youth from low-income backgrounds.The league also pledged $10 million toward renovating Holman Stadium, the Dodgers’ Grapefruit League home, as well as the motel rooms and a new indoor training facility. Indian River County pledged an additional $4.9 million for renovations. In theory, the upgraded facilities will allow Vero Beach to complement the Urban Youth Academy in Compton as an East Coast hub in MLB’s push for diversity.“My dad was so committed to young people,” Sharon Robinson said at the Tuesday morning press conference. “When he was still playing baseball he started with the Harlem YMCA, and he would meet with the young people there. They actually ended up naming that after him. He was always committed to the development of young people.”Craig Callan, the director of Dodgertown since 1988, credited O’Malley and Seidler for keeping the facility alive without a major league tenant. How does Dodgertown run a profitable business without the Dodgers? O’Malley made sure it didn’t matter.When Peter O’Malley assumed responsibility of the property in 2011, Callan said, “he signed a contract just to keep the legacy going, saying ‘I will not make a penny; I’m willing to absorb the losses.’ Any profit made during his tenure would be put back into the facility. That’s the Peter O’Malley/Terry Seidler legacy.”Related Articles Kenley Jansen remembers the proximity.“They used to be Dodger kind of royalty family – before you go in you see all these (retired Dodger players),” Jansen said. “You still see most of these guys coming into camp, but it’s not the same. When you have them come and stay there, everybody’s there together. It’s definitely a great experience looking back.”There aren’t many active baseball players who remember what it’s like to spend an entire spring training in Vero Beach. Most have retired. Four (Martin, Kershaw, Jansen and Pedro Baez) are still Dodgers. They were all just passing through Vero on their baseball journey. Even the Dodgers were temporary tenants in the “town” that bore their name from 1948 until Tuesday. Then as now, Indian River County owned the Dodgertown property.Yet what is Dodgertown without the actual Dodgers?That was the question hanging over Vero for a decade. The answer involved a little bit of everything. It was a preseason training site for a pro team from Korea and a college team from Japan. It was a training camp for CFL and NCAA football teams, a youth softball complex, a rugby camp, and a base for hurricane clean-up crews. It was a fantasy camp for fans and retired Dodger players which, since the Dodgers hosted their final Grapefruit League game on March 17, 2008, appeared to be Vero’s closest association with Major League Baseball. The league – specifically Tony Reagins and Darrell Miller, who oversee MLB’s youth directives – engaged the county in discussions behind the scenes to change that.

He never left, shepherding the complex through 41 years of Dodger ownership changes. He was Frank McCourt’s point man during the construction of Camelback Ranch. For a time, he also oversaw operations of Campo Las Palmas in the Dominican Republic. Now Callan is training an understudy who will succeed him when he retires in two months.“I have a 10-year-old son,” Callan said. “At 70 years old, I’m not going anywhere.”For Kershaw and Jansen, training in Vero Beach was an experience that required years to appreciate. When you’re a skinny teenager trying to find your way in baseball and the world, the history of the American Civil Rights Movement is probably beyond your ken. You’re not thinking about Jackie Robinson, Don Newcombe and Roy Campanella, even while you train where they trained.That will change now. For the first time in a while, Vero Beach belongs to baseball’s future as well as its past. Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco last_img read more
