J.T. and Lexi Realmuto

Honorary Board Member

J.T. Realmuto, a Midwest City native and graduate of Carl Albert High School, became engaged with The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital in 2016 when a family friend invited him to take a tour.  During the tour, J.T. immediately connected with the patients.  “Getting to spend time with these children has been a huge blessing for me,” said Realmuto. “They have done more for me than I could ever imagine.  I hope that everyone is blessed with the same opportunity to learn from them as I have.”  Realmuto was drafted by the Miami Marlins in the third round of the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft.  He was promoted to a starting catcher in 2015.  He now plays for the Philidelphia Phillies.  Lexi will join him as an honorary board member.
