Meet Tyler, Our Buddy Ambassador

By Laura Holms
Best Buddies Iowa

Buddy Ambassador Tyler Steinke had an awesome experience when he went to a Chicago Cubs game recently.

Tyler was on the field, waiting to see an eagle fly in at the singing of the National Anthem, when he was introduced to Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts.

Tyler, who is a huge Iowa Cubs and Chicago Cubs fan, amazed Tom with facts about all the players and loved having such a devoted fan at the ballpark.

The Cubs were on a 12 game losing streak until that Memorial Day game when a good luck charm from Iowa was in the stands.

Tyler has been Best Buddies Ambassador since March, and is excited to attend his first Leadership Conference this July! Tyler has been a huge supporter of the Best Buddies Friendship Walk, and was the driving force behind his team "Tyler's I-Cub Buddies" raising nearly $3500!

Along with being a huge Cubs fan - both Iowa Cubs and Chicago Cubs - Tyler is also a huge Iowa Energy fan and loves all sports! He is often found shooting hoops! Best Buddies Iowa is excited to have Tyler represent us!
