Turner has been one of the team's most active players in the community since he joined the Dodgers in 2014. He created the Justin Turner Foundation in 2016 to support homeless veterans and children battling life-altering illnesses. He has organized the annual Justin Turner Golf Classic to support the Los Angeles Dream Center's Veterans Home.
The Justin Turner Foundation has provided more than 10,000 toys and 2,000 bicycles to children in the Los Angeles area through its holiday giving efforts. Turner partners with 17Strong Foundation, which is built on giving patients recovering from life-altering illnesses a victory trip of their choice, and he's working with the Yokota Air Base in Fussa, Japan, to help create a softball league for U.S. military children.
"I'm incredibly honored to be the Dodgers' nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award, and be in the company of so many others around the league doing great work in their communities," Turner said. "I'm grateful for all the support we've received for the Justin Turner Foundation, and hope to continue to expand our reach with veterans, military-family youth sports leagues and bettering the lives of pediatric patients and their families."
