Emirates takes Los Angeles Dodgers players to Dubai

Posted 14 December 2017 · Add Comment

Emirates, the Official Airline of the Los Angeles Dodgers, has brought all-star players Justin Turner (third baseman) and Chase Utley (second baseman) to Dubai to help further develop the game of baseball in the region.

Late last year, Emirates and the Los Angeles Dodgers announced the sponsorship of the Dubai Little League Divisional Teams, now called the Dubai Dodgers.

Emirates’ local grassroots initiatives with the Los Angeles Dodgers highlight the airline’s commitment to the development of baseball in Dubai and the UAE.  Emirates and the Los Angeles Dodgers currently support the Dubai Little League with financial support, equipment, and uniforms to develop the talent of the 700 players in different divisions.

This week, Justin Turner and Chase Utley will host a kid’s clinic, teaching new skills and sharing their knowledge of the game. The players will then hold autograph signings.

The players will also be visiting the ICC Academy to test their cricket skills with the UAE national cricket team. Each LA Dodger player will try and hit 10 balls for 6, while each cricket player will each attempt to hit 10 balls in the aim for a home run.
