Using its versatile Ridgeline pickup truck, Honda has restored an OFA Little League Field in Houston that was damaged throughout 2016 by flooding. Honda donated $55,000 to the Honda Ridgeline Little League Community Project to get these facilities back up and running.
Honda performed a huge range of renovations and upgrades including regrading their fields, restoring their dugouts, replacing the protective netting, and installing new equipment for the concession stands. Local Honda dealers participated to make the renovations a reality as well as volunteers and the Honda Ridgeline truck.
The Honda Little League project is a reflection of the long-standing relationship between Honda and Little League Baseball and Softball. Honda has been a Little League sponsor since 1996 and has donated more than $1.2 million to underfunded teams in the last 21 years. Susie Rossick, the Assistant Vice President of Honda Automobile Marketing, said that “Honda is dedicated to helping young people strive to pursue their dreams” through the Honda Ridgeline Little League Community Project.
The Ridgeline, which was named the 2017 North American Truck of the Year, is packed with design innovations like an in-bed trunk that makes it the perfect truck for projects like this one.
