Throughout Olympic Day the children will hear inspirational words from Olympians that live within the state of Michigan, tour the facilities at Fifth Third Ballpark and run the bases on the ballfield. The first ever Olympic Day was celebrated in 1948. Today, it is celebrated in several countries all over the world.
