BAY CITY, Mich. – Unless you live under a rock, you may have noticed that Major League Baseball opened up its 2015 season this past Monday. Opening Day is a major holiday here in Michigan, with thousands of people heading to downtown Detroit to watch the Tigers open up, what most hope to be, a successful season with a run at the World Series Championship. Chevy gets ready for baseball season and if you have ever been to Comerica Park or have watched the games on TV, you might have noticed the two Chevy vehicles perched atop the Chevy Fountain in centerfield. Every year, Chevy chooses select vehicles from its new lineup to display throughout the season. Chevrolet has sponsored the fountain for the past six seasons, and this year a Velocity Yellow Corvette Z06 and a special Midnight Edition Silverado grace the walls of the centerfield fountain.
“As the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball, what better way could Chevrolet show our love of the game than by giving our vehicles a bird’s eye view of our hometown team?” said Paul Edwards, Chevy’s VP of Marketing. Chevy gets ready for baseball season every year by putting two new Chevy models atop the fountain, which features a number of intricate and entertaining displays and the sound of a growling tiger that can be heard with each Detroit home run.
As you can imagine, it takes a bit of creativity to get the two models up onto the fountain, especially when it’s done in the rain. It takes crewmembers three hours to get each vehicle into the best position, using cranes and a very strategic plan. So, next time you make your way down to see the Tigers play some ball, or happen to catch an inning or two on TV, pay close attention to the two Chevys mounted on the centerfield wall, cheering on the home team to drive in those centerfield homeruns!
