Trico Products Corp., a global leader in wiper blade technology, has announced a five-year partnership with the United Shore Professional Baseball League (USPBL), a professional baseball league founded in May 2016, based in Utica, Michigan.
USPBL is the result of a 10-year effort by General Sports to bring professional baseball to the Detroit area. The league is comprised of three teams – the Utica Unicorns, the Eastside Diamond Hoppers and the Birmingham Bloomfield Beavers – that are competing in the USPBL’s inaugural 75-game season at Jimmy John’s Field in downtown Utica.
“Partnering with the United Shore Professional Baseball League for a five-year sponsorship is an opportunity to help foster the growth and revitalization of the Detroit-area, home to TRICO and many other major automotive product manufacturers,” said Dawn Gonzalez, brand manager at Trico Products Corp.
USPBL fans can look forward to a number of events throughout the upcoming seasons as a result of TRICO’s sponsorship, including annual charity baseball clinics, youth baseball team pre-game parades and game-day TRICO Force wiper blade giveaways. Continuing its commitment to promoting safety and protecting individuals in adverse weather conditions, rain delay announcements and updates will be brought to spectators by TRICO. In addition, there will be a TRICO-branded poncho giveaway at one game each season throughout the five-year partnership.
“USPBL is bringing America’s favorite pastime to Detroit,” said Gonzalez. “TRICO is excited to be a part of this celebration of patriotism, especially with the Fourth of July holiday right around the corner.”
