Gaba, who battled four times with cancer, made headlines last year when he became the first person to announce a draft NFL selection using a draft card written in Braille.
The boy, who was a frequent caller to Baltimore sports radio stations, was invited to announce the selection in April 2019 after calling into 98 Rock sports station to discuss the draft.
As well as being on the field, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh invited Gaba to reveal the fourth-round draft selection for the team later that week. Harbaugh had told the superfan to pull out the red carpet.
