Dodgers Win 2013 Disability Rights Award


Last week when Clayton Kershaw was securing his second Cy Young award, the Dodgers as a club were winning a different kind of award. But this award is just as equally important. The Dodgers have won the 2013 disability rights in sports award. The award was presented to the Dodgers at the Omni hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

The disability rights legal center is there to help champion the rights of the disabled. The Dodgers made the recent renovations to Dodger Stadium with the disabled in mind. The new improvements allow everyone to see a Dodger game, whether they are disabled or not. The Dodgers have always been on the forefront of this type of accommodation to all fans. The new Dodger Stadium improvements include special seating for the disabled in all areas of Chavez Ravine.

Dodger Stadium is now fully accessible to all disabled Dodger fans. What a wonderful way to say thank you to all Dodger fans with disabilities. All people have the right to see a Dodger game no matter what their handicap is. Check out the moving video above.
