WOODSIDE, N.Y. (Sept. 4, 2013) — Nexen Tire America Inc. and Woodside-based M.I.C. Tires teamed up this summer to bring a slice of Korean life to the Long Island community.
The companies outfitted a local youth baseball team in the colors and insignia of the Nexen Heroes, a Korean professional baseball team.
M.I.C. Tires Owner Glenn Berman said that last year he approached Nexen, one of his dealership's tire suppliers, about sponsoring a local baseball team—a boys traveling team playing in a 14-and-up age group.
