On the evening of July 26th, 2013, Huber Tire, S&R Truck Tire Center, and Best-One Giant Tire shared an evening of fun, food, and family at Louisville Slugger Field, courtesy of Firestone and the Firestone Drives America Tour. Firestone representatives were on hand, traveling with a custom tractor trailer which was emblazoned with stars and stripes, and setup to display information about the latest Firestone tire innovations.
Just before the opening of the game between the hometown Louisville Bats, and the Scranton RailRiders, Firestone presented a $1000 check to the local Dare to Care Food Bank, and Huber Tire President Fred Ralston stepped to the mound to throw out the first pitch of the evening.
Although the Bats lost the game 5-6 in the 10th inning, the night was a big success for the Louisville and Southern Indiana Best-One family, as the fun and excitement played out under a cool, beautiful summer sky, and a great time was had by all. Special thanks go to the entire Firestone team for sponsoring the event, and to the staff at Louisville Slugger Field for being great hosts.
