Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp leads his team of volunteers at a Heal the Bay beach cleanup in Santa Monica on Tuesday morning.
More than 250 volunteers—including past and present members of the Los Angeles Dodgers, as well as dozens on their fans—braved the drizzle to help clean on Tuesday morning from 10 a.m. to noon.
Matt Kemp, Rafael Furcal, Fernando Valenzuela and Steve Garvey were among the luminaries who rolled up their jersey sleeves and volunteered. They helped clean up more than 75 pounds of trash.
Heal the Bay organized the event in conjunction with the Dodgers’ annual Community Caravan.
