"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. Wally Edgar Chevrolet is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball," said Mark Gratsch, General Manager for Wally Edgar Chevrolet.
"There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball and Wally Edgar Chevrolet wants to combine America's favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our families in Lake Orion to enjoy," added Gratsch.
The Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is beginning its seventh year, and has helped raise more than $13 million to aid local teams, affecting more than 2.7 million young people in communities where Chevrolet's customers live, work and play. This year, about 1,600 Chevrolet dealers are participating.
Wally Edgar Chevrolet will present the Lake Orion Youth Baseball League with 10 new equipment kits complete with equipment bags, baseball buckets; whiffle balls, hitting net, batting tees and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring former MLB/MiLB players and coaches and instructors from Ripken Baseball.
In addition, Wally Edgar Chevrolet will present a check representing a one-time monetary donation to Lake Orion Youth Baseball League. The team also will have an opportunity to raise additional funds through a Chevrolet Youth Baseball Fundraiser.
Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 2,000 fund-raiser entry tickets to distribute for a suggested donation, and each league will keep 100 percent of the proceeds it raises. At the end of the fund-raiser, five winners - one from each region - will win the Chevrolet Equinox or Chevrolet Cruze vehicle of their choice. Each participating market will award a secondary prize of a television and Blu-Ray player.
In addition to this commitment to youth baseball, Chevrolet also is the Official Vehicle of MajorLeague Baseball.
