The Steiner brothers — Braeden and Bronson — finally got an opportunity to forget their everyday lives and enjoy love, support and friendship from the Bowling Green State University baseball team.
The brothers were born with neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic disease with a number of inherited conditions including carrying a high risk of tumor formation, typically in the brain. Both boys have a severe form of NF and have gone through multiple cycles of chemotherapy.
Their mother, Jodie, was born with NF, but did not learn of her condition until she was 11-years-old. Because her NF was so mild and doctors told her she had a 50 percent chance of passing it on to her children, she and her husband decided to have their first son.
When Braeden was diagnosed with an optic glioma brain tumor, Jodie was told her son would either go blind or die.
“That wasn’t an option for us,” she said.

The trio of Alexis Rogers, Jillian Halfhill and Jill Stein combined for 48 points and 21 rebounds to help the Falcons post a 63-53 victory over Michigan in the third round of the WNIT.  PHOTO GALLERY
Bowling Green, now 30-4 overall, hosts Rutgers in the Elite Eight of the WNIT Monday with a 7 p.m. tipoff at the Stroh Center. Rutgers advanced with a 91-79 double-overtime win over Seton Hall Thursday.
In BG’s 76-65 second-round win over St. Bonaventure on Monday, Rogers scored only two points, Stein was scoreless, and Halfhill scored 18 points.
“I have got to commend our senior class,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘Those two (Rogers and Stein) in particular and Jillian Halfhill stepped up today, and I knew that they would. You saw what type of intestinal fortitude those three had, and I knew we would get the performance that we got from them.
‘‘There was a different intensity with them,’’ Roos continued. ‘‘They wanted to prove what they could do and they did.’’

Bowling Green's hockey team already is looking forward to next season.
The Falcons have steadily improved during last four seasons, including records of 18-15-6 overall and a tie for third-place in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
The Falcons had a winning record overall for the first time since 1997 and a winning record in league play for the first time since 2005.
BG, fourth in the WCHA coaches poll, also advanced to the semifinals of its league playoffs for the second time in the last three seasons.
"I like where we are," said BG coach Chris Bergeron, who will be in his fifth season next fall. "We've got good hockey players coming in wired the right way which is what we want. We want to put it all together.
"We're going to go into next year with expectations like we did this year. The difference will be we've been through a year with expectations and through a year of playing with a lead and being a team expected to win on some, not most, nights."
