In the spirit of community collaboration and teamwork taught through youth sports, Rentschler Chevrolet is supporting Northern Lehigh Softball through the Chevy Youth Baseball and Softball Program. This sponsorship will include both monetary and equipment donations during the Spring 2013 youth baseball season.

Chevy Youth Baseball and Softball is a grassroots initiative that establishes a positive relationship between local dealers and the communities they serve. Rentschler Chevrolet is sponsoring Northern Lehigh Softball as a part of Chevrolet's nationwide commitment to support youth sports, one community at a time. Over the course of the season, Rentschler Chevrolet will donate equipment to the league which may include: equipment bags, softballs, catcher's gear, batting helmets, ball buckets, umpire's equipment, coach's kits, break away bases, bat racks and first aid kits.

Each sponsored league will be able to offer Chevrolet Certified Service Coupons to their community to help boost support for their league. In addition, the free Chevrolet Youth Baseball and Softball Double Play Sweepstakes is back in 2013. This is an opportunity for the members of the community to win a 2013 Chevy Traverse, along with HD Televisions, courtesy of the local Chevrolet dealership.

Also, thanks to Rentschler Chevrolet and other participating area Chevrolet dealers, youth baseball and softball participants will have a chance to attend a youth clinic with a local professional baseball team.

"We are looking forward to a great season with Northern Lehigh Softball that will be filled with exciting games and an enhanced experience for the teams through the equipment and cash donations" Greg Williams, of Rentschler Chevrolet, said. "Chevy Youth Baseball and Softball is just one example of how committed our dealership is to supporting the youth and families in our community."

The 2013 program will provide assistance to an impressive 339 leagues in the Northeastern region and Chevrolet dealers will contribute nearly $600,000 in monetary and equipment donations.
