On opening day, Honda gifted the Staten Island Little League with a ceremonial check and hosted several fundraising events in an effort to increase community awareness. The additional money raised through these events will help replace damaged scoreboards and field lighting plus fund other needs throughout the season.

Rebuilding is a huge undertaking and they still need help. Please donate directly to Staten Island Little League at
