PRLog - Nov. 8, 2010 - CHEVROLET has donated $10,000 to CATCH, a Detroit-based children's charity, in honor of Sparky Anderson. Anderson died on Thursday, at the age of 76.

"This is an amazing gift in honor of a truly amazing man," said Jim Hughes, CATCH executive director.   "We're extremely grateful to CHEVROLET, not only for honoring the life of our charismatic leader with this generous donation, but also for recognizing that CATCH will remain a viable and impactful charity in Detroit for many years to come."

Anderson was the first major league manager to win a World Series in both the American and National Leagues. the first with the Cincinnati Reds in their Big Red Machine era, when the team won the 1975 and 1976 World Series; and the second with the DETROIT TIGERS, where he guided the Tigers to a World Series victory in 1984.

Anderson founded CATCH in 1987, to help support sick, injured and at-risk pediatric patients who receive care from Children's Hospital of Michigan and Henry Ford Hospital. Anderson is quoted as saying, "There's nothing in this word that you will ever do that's better than helping a child."

"We wanted to pay tribute to Sparky Anderson who left an indelible mark on CHEVROLET's home town," said Kevin Mayer, CHEVROLET advertising director, "contributing to one of the greatest years in Detroit Tigers history, and helping thousands of DETROIT kids in need."

CHEVROLET has long been associated with baseball, appearing as the "Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball®" in 1985, which continues today. In addition, the CHEVY Youth Baseball program has benefitted more than one million youth baseball players and their families since the program began in 2006.

Every year, Sparky returned to DETROIT to join local and national celebrities at a Golf Outing to promote and fund Operation Catch to assure it's continued support for those in need.
