05/02/13 Country Auto Center is partnering with the Plymouth Junior League Baseball in Plymouth. Country Auto Center has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment, a monetary contribution, invitations to FREE instructional clinics, and an opportunity for community members to enter the Free Chevrolet vehicle sweepstakes.
“Youth baseball provides positive and productive life lessons for young people across America, and the Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is an extension of Chevrolet’s commitment to baseball, community and families. Country Auto Center is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball,” said Joe Martin Jr., owner of Country Auto Center.
“There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball and Country Auto Center wants to combine America’s favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our families in Plymouth to enjoy,” added Martin Jr..
2013 marks Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball program’s eighth year, and since its introduction has helped aid local teams, affecting more than 3 million young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play. In 2012, about 1,600 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.
Country Auto Center will present the Plymouth Junior League Baseball with equipment kits with items including things like equipment bags, baseball buckets, practice hitting nets, umpire ball bags, batting tees and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches and instructors from Ripken Baseball.
In addition, Country will present a check representing a one-time monetary contribution to Plymouth Junior League Baseball. Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 2,000 Free Sweepstakes Entry forms to distribute within the community. At the end of the entry period, five winners – one from each region – will win their choice between a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu or Chevrolet Traverse. Each participating market will award a secondary prize.
In addition to its commitment to youth baseball, Chevrolet also is the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball™.
“Chevrolet vehicles are designed and built for families, so we hope young people and their parents will consider a Chevrolet as an official vehicle of their household,” said Martin Jr..
