WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Bryant has been a national Little League Baseball (LLB) sponsor since 2004. This season LLB celebrated its 60th anniversary. Bryant sponsors teams locally through individual HVAC dealers and distributors. In 2005, more than 70 Bryant dealers participated in the program to donate $254,422 worth of equipment for the 2005 season, including equipment bags, ball buckets, refrigerator magnets, scorebooks, and water coolers. As part of this season, Florida's Land O' Lakes Little League team participated in the Bryant Future Stars program at the Tampa Bay Devil Rays home game vs. the New York Yankees. Each player received VIP treatment as they toured the press box, learned about the scoreboard and how the grass is maintained, played catch on the field with recognition on the scoreboard screen, and watched the game from the stands.

During the Little League World Series, late in August, Bryantman interacted with the crowd and posed for photos. Bryant gave away Bryantman action figures while the superhero's commercials were played at the Bryant tent. The company also gave out its annual Coolest Coach award to Mike Flynn of the Dublin Giants from Dublin Little League in California. Each year, Bryant Heating and Cooling Systems presents its Coolest Coach Award to one outstanding individual who embodies the values - courage, character, and loyalty - of Little League Baseball and provides players with a life-shaping experience.
