"We're very blessed to have this opportunity," said Kayla Strege of Algoma. Her son, Owen, was one of three kids surprised Saturday. "Just for him to get this experience, especially at the start of his love for sports, it's going to make such a big impact."
As part of the trip, all three kids and their families will meet Brewers players, tour the clubhouse and throw out the first pitch at a spring training game next Saturday.
