The Homer’s Heroes division is for boys and girls with physical or intellectual disabilities, ages 5 to 17. In 2016, 96 players participated in the program. Six weeks of games are played starting the first Saturday of June. Volunteer “Buddies” encourage and assist each player during the game. One game is played at Haymarket Park with the Lincoln Saltdogs players. The Optimist Clubs of Lincoln established the program in 1992 and has coordinated this baseball league since that time. Shirts and awards are furnished by the Optimist Clubs. Caps, field rental and equipment are sponsored by the Junior Saltdogs League.
