Ocean Honda of Whittier Cares
From the sponsorship of athletics, charity events, auctions and more, Ocean Honda of Whittier put its money where its mouth is.

We take great pride in each cause we support because, in the words of the Ancient Greek Fabulist; Aesop, "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." We believe that each act of kindness affects the relationship and the greater community. We strive for this type of interaction with each and every client we work with.
I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Ocean Honda for your sponsorship this spring season. My team was able to participate in a mid-season March Madness Tournament where we got to play against several good teams. We placed 6th out of 15 teams and for some of the girls they would not get to play in a tournament unless they make the All Star Team at the end of the season.
Shortly after the March tournament, my team took their softball a lot more seriously because the top teams in the tournament were very polished and my team wanted to be like them. I had two girls make catches in the outfield that NEVER caught a ball in a game who continued to make plays throughout the season and that is a big part of being exposed to tournament play. I also had three of players make the WGSL All Star Teams: my starting catcher Miranda ("Ice Box"), 3rd baseman Lila ("Liza"), and pitcher/shortstop Nahima ("Nay Nay").
These girls saw the level of competition at the tournament and they all said they wanted to be at that level. They then worked their butts off over the the next two months putting in extra work outside of regular practices, coming in early or staying afterwards to get in some extra fielding or hitting. I was so happy for all three of my girls who made the All Star Team and it was priceless to see their faces when their name is announced at closing ceremonies.
I was also selected to the All Star Team as one of the coaches so I get to continue playing into the summer with two of the players from spring. All Stars is the most exciting time for the girls as this is where they get be on a team with 12 other girls like them who love and care about softball. All the parents on the team were happy to see that the girls were exposed to tournament play and different leagues. I would remind them throughout the season I don't do this alone and that we have great sponsors like Ocean Honda of Whittier.Thank you, Mike Ortiz 10U Whittier Wolf Pack
