BAY CITY, Mich. – Swing batter batter, swing! Chevrolet just hit a home run with an MLB (Major League Baseball) sponsorship renewal. Since 2005 Chevy has partnered with the MLB and the Detroit Tigers for programs and showcasing their best-selling cars above Comerica Park. This year, Chevrolet renewed another sponsorship with the MLB and USA Baseball.
The three companies, Chevy, MLB, and USA Baseball, have come together for a second season to get kids of all age groups involved in baseball and softball within their community. Kids that participate can be a part of year-round local events, an inaugural Play Ball Weekend, and get unique experiences with Major and Minor League Baseball teams.
Paul Edwards, the US VP of Chevrolet Marketing, is thrilled about this partnership and was quoted by saying, “Chevrolet’s partnership with Major League Baseball is a natural fit and allows the brand and our dealers to connect with generations of Americans on a personal level through the support of hometown teams at both the professional and youth levels. At Chevrolet, we appreciate the power of play and the profoundly positive effect it has on kids. Baseball helps kids develop, connect with each other, and learn sportsmanship; and it ultimately brings families and communities together.”
Through this partnership, Chevrolet created the Chevy Youth Baseball Program. Over the year the Chevy Youth Baseball Program has donated over 90,000 equipment packs, renovated 9,400 local parks, and has made a difference in over 5.2 million kid's lives across the nation. The program is dedicated to bringing families and community together, as well as getting active and playing America’s favorite pastime.
