On July 8, members of a Bryant-sponsored Florida Little League team participated in the Bryant Future Stars program at the Tampa Bay Devil Rays home game vs. the New York Yankees.
Each young player toured the press box, learned about the scoreboard and how the grass is maintained, played catch on the field with recognition on the scoreboard screen, and watched the game from the stands.
Bryant has sponsored Little League Baseball for the past three seasons. Teams are sponsored locally through individual dealers and distributors.
In 2005, more than 70 Bryant dealers participated in the program to donate $254,422 worth of equipment for the 2005 season.
Items donated to Little League Baseball through distributors and dealers include equipment bags, ball buckets, refrigerator magnets, scorebooks, and water coolers.
Bryant Heating Cooling Systems will also offer sponsorship assistance at the Little League World Series in Williamsport , PA in August.
