Do You Know What’s Awesome?

…Bright House Networks!

They sponsor MLB baseball teams & Little League Teams.

Bright House Networks helps sponsor our league to buy uniforms and equipment and pay for kids who couldn’t afford to play. They sponsored when I played College Park Baseball which is now called Orlando Babe Ruth & now for Maitland Little League since we moved. I heard they sponsor a lot of other leagues also. The coolest was when they helped us pay for our all-star jerseys at College Park! Me and some of my teammates even made it on the Bright House Networks website!

Bright House is so awesome because they also sponsor teams stadiums. I have been to the Washington Nationals Spring Training Stadium in Viera, Detroit Tigers in Lakeland, The Tampa Bay Rays MLB Stadium and The Stetson Hatters Stadium for College. I’ve also been to the Atlanta Braves Spring Training Stadium by Disney.

I’ve never been to a Yankees Spring Training game in Tampa or a Phillies Spring Training game in Clearwater, but someday, I would like to go there. Those stadiums also have been sponsored by Bright House Networks.

I’ve been to the Texas Rangers Stadium and the Toledo Mud Hens MILB Minor League Baseball Triple-A, but they’re not sponsored by Bright House Networks, they’re sponsored by banks I think.

I like watching baseball on TV too, and hope my dad will get me MLB extra innings.

I love to watch the Detroit Tigers Play, my Dad is from near there and they are his favorite team. Some of my favorite players are Alex Avila #13, Justin Verlander #35, Miguel Cabrera #24 from the Detroit Tigers. I like Bryce Harper #34 & Stephen Strausburg #37 from the Washington Nationals. I like Evan Longoria #3 and David Price #14 on the Tampa Bay Rays, but we don’t need MLB extra innings for the Rays we get those games on Fox Sports.

  18. Colin, I had no idea that Bright House sponsors so many stadiums. And it’s great that Bright House helps your team out with jerseys and other stuff. It’s especially nice that Bright House helps kids who would not otherwise get a chance to play on a Little League team. I’m glad you love the game so much!

    All good to know — thanks for sharing!

    • Thank You MARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(: I’m happy that they sponsor Little League teams to!!!!!!!

  19. Hi Colin!

    I like a lot of the favorite players you mentioned too! Mostly Longoria and Price since I’m a Rays fan. =) I’ve heard rumors that the team may end up moving. I hope not though.

    It is pretty awesome that Bright House sponsors so many teams and contributes back to the community. I was even able to play quite a few seasons on a recreational soccer team thanks to Bright House sponsoring us.

    Is the bottom right of your photo taken from Tropicana Field? If so, that’s right near me! One of the things I especially like about that stadium is that it’s covered so whether it’s sweltering hot outside or torrential downpour, you can still enjoy the game. Making it to and from the car on a stormy day might be a trickier matter though! heh.
