"Our partnership with Vision To Learn helps us support one of our key foundation pillars, health and wellness, by providing free eyeglasses to elementary school students throughout the greater Los Angeles area," said Dodgers owner and Foundation chairman Mark Walter. "We are excited to be working with them on this effort."

Ellis and League, who both wear glasses, will remain involved with Vision to Learn during the season. They will host a total of 500 guests, including kids who received eyeglasses and their families, when the Dodgers begin a three-game series against the Cardinals on May 24.
