Hope all you kids and parents are enjoying the first part of your summer! So much has been happening here at Werner Park now that the weather has finally decided to cooperate. I do my best to control it, but, with 71 home games, I need to pace myself. Now you have NO EXCUSE not to come out to see your favorite green guy, and take in a baseball game too!
If you and your family are looking for a more specific reason to come visit me, look no further than Superhero Night on June 24th with my friends at ParentSavvy! We at the Omaha Storm Chasers are going to have an Alex Gordon Superhero bobblehead giveaway that night for the first 1500 people, but more importantly, I get to wear my cape!!! I'll take any chance I get to dress up. ParentSavvy is going to be handing out a superhero mask to the first 1000 kids, so make sure you get a picture with me! I think my cape makes me look slimmer, so be sure to get my good side.
Superhero Night has got me thinking; what can we do to be everyday Superheroes for our community???
In my mind, being a Superhero can be as simple as picking up litter on the sidewalk, or as big as donating to food pantries to help those less fortunate. At the ballpark, we are taught to pick up any trash to keep our Werner Park community clean, and on Sundays, we let people bring canned foods in to donate to a local food pantry. When they bring in the canned food, it gets them a ticket to the game! Being a superhero doesn’t have to be as big as saving the world; it just means that you’re making a difference in the lives of the people around you.
Baseball season is in full swing! (See what I did there?) I can’t wait to see more and more of you come out, and make sure to visit on Superhero Night on June 24th!
‘Til next time!
