Since 2006, participating dealers in the Chevrolet Youth Baseball program have helped raise more than $13 million for equipment and other team needs; sponsored more than 500 youth clinics; reached more than 3 million young people and helped raise money to fund more than 2,000 park improvements. This year, more than 1,600 Chevrolet dealers are involved.
In addition to being the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball, Chevrolet supports youth baseball initiatives across the country through the Chevrolet Youth Baseball and Diamonds and Dreams programs.
Chevrolet began the Diamonds and Dreams program in 2010 to help provide young ball players with an opportunity to play on a “dream” baseball field in their hometown.

This will provide new equipment, instructional clinics, a monetary donation and an opportunity to raise an additional $10,000 through a Chevrolet vehicle sweepstakes. The program has kicked off and runs through July 15, 2012.

Jack Maxton Chevrolet is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball,” said Marc Hellman, General Manager for Jack Maxton Chevrolet.
