Saugus High Students, LASD, AND First Responders meet/greet members of the Los Angeles Dodgers
Two months after the tragic and deadly shooting at Saugus High School, players from the L.A. Dodgers Surprised Saugus High School Students during one of their campus pep rallies Friday morning.
Students were in awe as they had the chance to meet and play games with some of the players. While others were getting jerseys signed by the athletes. Players like, Austin Barnes, Matt Beaty, Walker Buehler, Caleb Ferguson, Dylan, Floro, Kyle Garlick, Tony Gonsolin, Adam Kolarek, Gavin Lux, Dustin May, Zach McKinstry, Max Muncy, Justin Turner and Jimmy Nelson offered words of encouragement and support for students.
As part of the “Dodgers Love LA Community Tour”, a
week-long engagement where the Los Angeles Dodger players, alumni and employees
partner with community based organizations to help promote and support work
that positively changes the lives of children, teens, and adults, Dodger
players focused on showing gratitude to Santa Clarita Valley Station Deputies,
first responders, other law enforcement agencies and military servicemen who
came to assist the students at Saugus High School.
After the rally at Saugus High, players visited Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station and had lunch with Sheriff Alex Villanueva and station personnel. Sheriff Alex Villanueva said “I want to thank the LA Dodgers and their organization for offering support to our personnel, and the students of this community. This team is an integral part of LA County, we all root and support them during their season. And it was wonderful to see them come up here and show support for all of us in the Santa Clarita Valley that were affected by this senseless tragedy.”
