Steve Heller conceived the original idea of Strikes For Tikes in 1999 and worked with the Winnipeg Goldeyes of the American Association to prove the concept. Since then, the Strikes For Tikes program has raised well over a million dollars for the Winnipeg Goldeyes’ Field of Dreams Foundation, that serves the greater Winnipeg community. Steve is passionate about both baseball and giving back to the community, and splits his time between Winnipeg, Canada and Sunrise, Florida.
