Hankook Hosts Dealers at Baseball All-Star Game

Posted on July 15, 2019

As part of its 2019 MLB All-Star Week activity in Cleveland, Ohio, Hankook Tire America Corp. entertained its dealers, who watched the game from the company's loge.

The activities also included a visit to Play Ball Park, the world's largest and most playable baseball and softball field. The Hankook booth at the facility featured special prizes and baseball-themed Hankook merchandise. Dealers and fans also were given a chance to mimic their on-field heroes by pretending to celebrate a game-winning home run and showing off their best bat flip celebration at Hankook's "Bat Flip" simulator booth.

For the main event at Progressive Field, home of the Cleveland Indians, Hankook hosted an honored military veteran at the MLB All-Star Game presented by Mastercard as part of its relationship with DAV (Disabled American Veterans).

"All-Star Week celebrates the best of America's pastime, and Hankook is proud to be a part of this special event again in 2019," said Hankook Tire America Corp. President Hosung Suh. "Hankook not only delivers great rides for drivers around the country, but also on the baseball field in partnership with MLB. We're pleased that we could honor those who served by hosting a member of the DAV to this week's festivities."
