Jerry Haag Motors presented the Highland County YMCA Little League Program with a $500 check Wednesday as part of the National Chevrolet Youth Baseball initiative.
Now in its ninth year, Chevy Youth Baseball is a grassroots initiative that establishes a positive relationship between local dealers and the communities they serve. Chevy Dealers sponsor their local youth baseball leagues as a part of Chevrolet’s nationwide commitment to support youth sports, one community at a time.
“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. Jerry Haag Motors is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball,” said Steve Haag, owner of Jerry Haag Motors.
The 2015 program will provide assistance to approximately 350 leagues in the Northeastern region and Chevrolet dealers will contribute more than $600,000 in monetary and equipment donations.
“There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball and Jerry Haag Motors wants to combine America’s favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our families in Highland County to enjoy,” added Steve Haag.
In addition to its commitment to youth baseball, Chevrolet also is the “Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball” and was a big part of the All-Star Game festivities in Cincinnati this week.
“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 Steve Haag.
