Grand Prizewinner of 2000 Sweepstakes will drive home in Honda Odyssey

TORRANCE, Calif., August 18, 2000 – Before the start of the U.S. Championship game on August 24, in front of over 30,000 fans, all first place winners of the Honda Home Run Sweepstakes will receive a key. The recipient of the key that starts the Honda Odyssey parked on the field will win the Grand Prize and drive the minivan home.

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. sponsored the national Sweepstakes for the 2000 season. Over 600 leagues participated, soliciting over 6 million entries for a chance to win the 2001 Honda Odyssey. With parents, fans and community members donating $2.00 per entry, the 2000 Sweepstakes will provide substantial support for the Little League program.

Five first place winners were drawn at random and will each receive a trip, including airfare, hotel, rental car, spending money and tickets to the 2000 Little League Baseball World Series in Williamsport, PA for four.

The five first place winners who will have the chance to win the 2001 Honda Odyssey are:

  • Henry Crumpler (Narrow, VA)
  • Sandy Drudge (Goshen, IN)
  • Anthony Munoz (Austin, TX)
  • Rick Pierce (Bakersfield, CA)
  • Eric Williams (Detroit, MI)

Honda’s ongoing participation in Little League Baseball includes not only sweepstakes sponsorships and prizes, but also child safety events and merchandise donations to selected Little Leagues nationwide.
