2015 Little League Baseball® World Series
Honda welcomed a crowd of thousands to this year’s Little League Baseball®
World Series. Families enjoyed a host of amazing activities at Honda Dream Camp, like a dunk tank, baseball pit dive, and a fluorescent photo op. We gave everyone the chance to "Guess the Spokescrumb" before finally revealing Jelly the Gummy Bear as our newest mascot. We also gave away great prizes like ear buds, glow balls, and even a 2016 Pilot Elite®
. It was a great year to celebrate Little Leaguers' big dreams with Honda!
Celebrating 20 Years of Little League® Dreams
Honda is proud to be a national sponsor of Little League® Baseball and Softball for the 20th consecutive year. From perfectly pitched fastballs to great displays of sportsmanship, the kids who play Little League® Baseball and Softball always bring their "A" game. Like their big league idols, Little Leaguers show everyone how sweat, determination, and teamwork can lead to success. But they also show us that, win or lose, the games are really about fun and fair play.
So here's a big thanks to all the players, coaches, volunteers, parents and countless others who make Little League® such a success. Your selfless dedication has made the baseball and softball diamonds great places to play, learn and grow.
Rides to practice, made perfect
Head to the field in style in the Honda Odyssey. Catch up on game footage using the available Ultrawide Rear Entertainment System and cool off after the game with the tri-zone automatic climate control system (EX and above). With available seating for up to eight, there's plenty of room for teammates as well as their gear. A 28-mpg highway rating means fewer stops along the way, and the available built-in HondaVAC®
(SE and Touring Elite®
) keeps the dirt out of the Odyssey and on the field where it belongs.

The Urban Initiative—Everyone Wins
In 1999, the Urban Initiative program sprang to life. Designed to help communities with the dream, but without the resources, to play Little League® Baseball and Softball, it has grown from just Los Angeles and Harlem to include over 250 leagues in 90 cities nationwide.
The goal is to bring the benefits of the Little League®
program to children within urban communities across the United States by creating or renewing baseball and softball programs in these neighborhoods. The initiative’s success is evident: Kids learn and build citizenship, discipline, teamwork, self-esteem and physical well-being. And beyond the mission and the success, at the heart of this program is providing every child with a chance to know the magic contact of the baseball bat hitting a ball, or the thrilling thud of the ball landing squarely in a mitt—giving each kid a chance. Honda has proudly supported this program for the past 13 years with contributions totaling about $1.2 million. And in each of those years, the Urban Initiative has aided approximately 51,000 players.
Donations from Honda this year help to improve playing fields. Better still, they improve the life of each kid who steps up to the plate on those very fields. You can make a difference, too.
