Kerrie Orozco Memorial Ballfield Groundbreaking Renovations – Miller Park
Major Field Renovations for Miller Park’s Kerrie Orozco Memorial Ballfield Made Possible through Philanthropic Donations
The City of Omaha has received several generous philanthropic donations for the Kerrie Orozco Memorial Ballfield in Omaha. The project includes a newly turfed field, scoreboard, and other ballfield renovations. Miller Park’s ballfield was named in memory of fallen Omaha Officer, Kerrie Orozco in 2015, who was also actively involved in coaching youth leagues in Omaha. The field has served the Police Athletics for Community Engagement (PACE) boys and girls leagues as a nice ballfield to play on at Miller Park. Members of the Latino Peace Officers Association and the Black Police Officers Association have also been trying to expand the ballfield’s presence in Omaha since 2015.
“The City is honored to have received generous philanthropic donations to renovate the Kerrie Orozco Ballfield at Miller Park. We are humbled to share in this project with the surrounding community”, says Brook Bench, Parks Director for the City of Omaha.
Numerous groups involved were in attendance as well as Mayor Stothert, Omaha Police Department members including Chief Schmaderer, representatives of PACE, LPOA, BPOA, and some of Kerrie's family members.
