What happens when your baseball and softball fields are ravaged by storms, winds and flood damage? Well, if you're the OFA Little League in Houston, you get a lot of help from Honda courtesy of its Honda Ridgeline Little League Grant Program, which donated $55,000 donation to fix the deteriorating fields.
A small fleet of Ridgelines trucked in supplies used to regrade fields, restore dugouts, build new backstops, install foul ball netting, repair bleachers and fences, and erect a new concession building. Local Honda dealers and parents volunteered their time and energy for several weeks during the renovation project.
The result? The OFA Little League was able to start its season on time on March 4.
American Honda has sponsored Little League Baseball and Softball since 1996, and through the grant program, it has distributed more than $1.2 million to help improve fields, purchase equipment and rebuild buildings devastated by hurricanes, tornadoes and other natural disasters in Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas.
Here's a quick video from the program's Texas project.
