From release

 Lancaster Motor Company is partnering with the Lancaster County Parks and Recreation baseball in Lancaster.

Lancaster Motor Company 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. Lancaster Motor Company is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball,” said Carl Boyd, of Lancaster Motor Company.

“There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball and Lancaster Motor Company wants to combine America’s favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our families in Lancaster to enjoy,” added Boyd.

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.

Lancaster Motor Company will present Lancaster County Parks and Recreation’s baseball program with an equipment kit that includes 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, Lancaster Motor Company will present a check representing a one-time monetary contribution to Lancaster County Parks and Recreation baseball. 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,” Boyd said.
