MEDFORD, Ore. - Medford Rogues hosted the Second Annual Superhero night honoring super fan Chaz.

The event began a year when a 4-year-old boy named Chaz, who was diagnosed with Leukemia, came to meet his favorite baseball team.

When the Medford Rogues found out how much he loved superheroes they decided to hold a superhero night in his honor.

Management says it’s the least they can do for kids like Chaz to put a smile on their face

"Any kind of childhood illness is the worst thing, it's terrible for the kids and it's terrible for the families and what we try to do is have a night here where they can maybe forget about that and celebrate that there are superheroes," said Carolyn Birch, Rogues General Manager.

Chaz, who is now in remission threw the first pitch.

The Rogues also donated a $1 to the Children's Miracle Network for every person who wore a superhero costume on Thursday's game.
