Angels come to us in many forms; our angel was Landon.

The Landon’s Legacy Foundation was born after Landon’s passing in order to keep his amazing spirit alive in our community.

No child should have to watch life from the sidelines.

We can not change or cure the medical issues life has dealt children with disabilities, what we can do is provide them with an opportunity to experience the joy and benefits that come from playing our national past time – Baseball.

A dream and legacy continued.

We have partnered with Billings Kiwanis and Billings Parks and Recreation to create our community’s first special needs baseball field.

About Landon’s Legacy

The Landon’s Legacy Foundation was born after Landon’s passing in order to keep his amazing spirit alive in our community. Landon’s Legacy Foundation will leave a tangible footprint in the Billings community and positively affect those faced with similar challenges.

Landon’s Legacy Foundation has partnered with Billings Kiwanis and Billings Parks and Recreation to create our communities first special needs baseball field. Billings Parks and Recreation has generously donated the land for the baseball field at The Poly Vista Baseball Complex located at 38th and Poly Drive. This field is know as a “Miracle League” Baseball field. It is a custom designed latex free rubberized turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other adaptive equipment. The Miracle League field will serve children and adults who suffer from any physical or mental disabilities which causes them to be excluded from other baseball leagues.

An avid baseball fan, Landon dreamed of hitting a Grand Slam, rounding the bases and sliding into home plate for a game win, being on a team and seeing his beloved New York Yankees play. This dream was never realized due to Landon’s passing on June 3, 2013. With your help Landon’s dream and legacy will be continued in our community.
