Hero Day is an amazing day where your child has the opportunity to be reminded of their inner hero!
Each year, we have the pleasure of hosting a new group of heroes and their families at the Omaha Baseball Village, where they get to experience the royal treatment – a tour of the village, free merch, and a family cookout. They can go around the village and practice their swing, test out a new glove, or enjoy some of the amazing food vendors we have!
As with every year past, we are bringing in several heroes from the Omaha community who are all fighting through courageous battles with their health. Many of us see our heroes everyday out on the field or on a screen, but oftentimes the true heroes are those fighting their own battles in hospitals or care centers. We are honored to have these young, inspiring individuals at the Omaha Baseball Village and give them the opportunity to just be a happy kid.
We also want to give a huge thank you to Scheels for being the sponsor of Hero Day and allowing them to shop the best sporting goods out there!
Our 2023 Hero Levi!
Levi is one of five children, he has a twin Owen, older sister Tarynn, younger sister Alyza, and a little brother, Jordy. On August 14, 2010, life was forever changed. Levi had a grand mal seizure while getting his diaper changed. Levi had a grade four brain bleed and spent some time in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Today, he has developmental delay, complex partial seizures, autism with combination ADHD, hydrocephalus, cerebral palsy, Klinefelter’s syndrome, and may possibly have Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy. Although this all sounds scary, this little man takes every opportunity to defy the odds stacked against him. He is full of life, loves everyone, and works hard to improve himself. Levi enjoys biking, nerf gun fights, baseball, and video games. He loves to play with his siblings especially when the weather is nice enough to go outside. He and his twin, Owen, like to play basketball, baseball, and football in the front yard. During the colder months though, he likes to play on the Xbox or watch movies with family.
