Worthington, April 3, 2014 – Jack Maxton Chevrolet is partnering with the Olentangy Braves Little League in Worthington. Jack Maxton Chevrolet has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment, a monetary contribution, invitations to free instructional clinics, and an opportunity for community members to earn additional donations for their league via a Test Drive fundraiser.
“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. Jack Maxton Chevrolet is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball,” said Jeff Mauk, Owner of Jack Maxton Chevrolet.
“There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball and Jack Maxton Chevrolet wants to combine America’s favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our families in Worthington to enjoy,” added Mauk.
2014 marks Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball program’s ninth year, and since its introduction has helped aid local teams, benefiting more than 3.5 million young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play. In 2013, more than 1,600 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.
Jack Maxton Chevrolet will present Olentangy Braves Little League with an equipment kit that includes useful items, such as bags, batting tees, catcher’s gear, water bottles and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches, and instructors from Ripken Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association.
In addition, Jack Maxton Chevrolet will present a check representing a one-time monetary contribution to Olentangy Braves Little League. 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, so we hope young people and their parents will consider a Chevrolet as an official vehicle of their household,” said Mauk.
