'Dogs Host Annual Homer's Heroes Game on Saturday

June 21, 2019 - American Association (AA) - Lincoln Saltdogs News Release

LINCOLN, Nebraska - The Lincoln Saltdogs in partnership with the Optimist Clubs of Lincoln will host the annual Homer's Heroes game on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. inside Nebraska's Bowlin Stadium.

The 'Dogs and Optimist Clubs of Lincoln work together to organize and manage the Homer's Heroes program - a baseball program that allows kids with disabilities a chance to play baseball throughout the summer.

"We look forward to this event each and every year," 'Dogs President and General Manager Charlie Meyer said. "It's a fun day for both the kids and the players."

Over one hundred kids will have a chance to play with the Saltdogs throughout the morning, running through various drills and clinics before they organize a game for everyone to play.

The program has operated for many years, and for one morning each summer, the 'Dogs, Homer's Heroes and Lincoln Fire & Rescue have a chance to play baseball at Bowlin Stadium. Media are invited and encouraged to attend the annual event.

Afterwards, the kids will get to take in a 'Dogs game at Haymarket Park - a 7:05 p.m. first pitch against the Texas AirHogs.

The Saltdogs are playing their 19th season in Lincoln. All ticket and promo information can be found at, and follow the 'Dogs on Twitter/Instagram @saltdogsball.
