Foxconn Announces Partnership With Mahoning Valley Scrappers

NILES, Ohio – Hon Hai Technology Group, or Foxconn, has partnered with the Mahoning Valley Scrappers to present their 2023 season.

The partnership provides Foxconn with a significant season-long presence with the Scrappers through community engagement and hospitality.

During the 2023 season, Foxconn will sponsor five unique team specialty jersey nights, with jersey proceeds benefiting local community organizations. Foxconn will also sponsor the weekly “Every Sunday Matters” promotion, which gives back to local charities every Scrappers Sunday home game.

“Foxconn is proud to partner with the Mahoning Valley Scrappers for the 2023 MLB Draft League Season, Foxconn said in a statement. “Foxconn is looking forward to another great season from the Mahoning Valley Scrappers. We look forward to enjoying America’s pastime with thousands of those who call the Mahoning Valley home and who visit the Mahoning Valley.“

“I am so pleased to have Foxconn as our presenting sponsor this season,” said Jordan Taylor, executive vice president of HWS Baseball. “A partnership between two organizations celebrating 25 years in the Valley and a company helping shape the future of the Valley promotes pride in our past and excitement for things to come.”

In May 2022, Foxconn purchased Lordstown Motors Corp.’s plant in Lordstown for $230 million. The Taiwanese tech giant intends to act as a contract manufacturer for electric-vehicle manufacturers.

“Foxconn’s partnership with the Mahoning Valley Scrappers is just a start to how we will work tirelessly to support the community through jobs, investment, and opportunities for all those who call the Mahoning Valley home,” Foxconn said.
