Gates Chevy World Goes to Bat for Harris Baseball Softball
Gates Chevy World to provide Harris Baseball Softball with new equipment, monetary contribution
Mishawaka, Feb. 20, 2018 – Gates Chevy World is partnering with the Harris Baseball Softball in Granger. Gates Chevy World has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment and an opportunity for community members to earn donations for their league via a Test Drive fundraiser.
“Playing the game of baseball helps kids develop skills like leadership, cooperation and sportsmanship while bringing families and communities together to show their support. Gates Chevy World and Chevrolet Youth Baseball are proud to participate in a sport that brings so many smiles to kids and families in Granger.” said Shaun Dralle, Fleet Manager for Gates Chevy World. “Chevrolet believes that in play, there are possibilities and supports the spirit of teamwork that baseball instills in its players.”
2018 marks Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball program’s 13th year, and since its introduction has helped aid local teams, benefiting more than 12.4 million young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play. In 2017, more than 1,500 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.
Gates Chevy World will present an equipment kit that includes useful items such as batpacks, scorebooks, industrial-strength batting tees, ball buckets and T-shirts.
In addition, Gates Chevy World will present a check representing a one-time monetary contribution to Harris Township Baseball Softball. Sponsored leagues across the country will have the chance to earn additional funds as community members take test drives at their partnering dealership to help support the league.
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, safety and fun, so we encourage young people and their parents to make a Chevrolet the official vehicle of their household,” said Shaun Dralle.
