"Dream" chance for baseball field makeover offered to community
Fairway Chevrolet in Hazleton announced today that its support of youth baseball and baseball fans continues through "Diamonds & Dreams" program.
Richard Molinaro, manager of Fairway Chevrolet, encourages everyone to register online at www.chevybaseball.com for a chance to win one of 12 field makeovers and the grand prize of an all-new Chevrolet Malibu Eco.
Starting today, individuals can enter through www.chevybaseball.com for a chance to win a refurbished baseball field for their community or another community they feel is deserving. One winner will be chosen each week for up to 12 weeks through July 22.
"Every young person wants and deserves a 'dream' baseball diamond and we offer them a chance to get one," said Molinaro.
In its third year, "Diamonds & Dreams" has already awarded 25 youth field makeovers across the country.
"From the backyards to the big leagues, Chevrolet is committed to community and youth baseball and giving back to where our customers live, work and play," said Phil Caruso, Chevrolet National Promotions Manager.
Renovations of the 12 field makeovers will be administered through Ripken Design, a division of Ripken Baseball, the company owned and operated by National Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. and 12 year Major League Baseball veteran Bill Ripken.
"I have been working for Chevy for about two decades, and it is a relationship that I value a great deal," said Cal Ripken. "Together we are positively impacting kids through baseball at the grassroots level and giving them safe places to play. It is very gratifying part of what we do, and I appreciate Chevrolet making us a part of this terrific effort."
The Official Lawn Care Company of Major League Baseball, Scotts, will continue to partner with Chevrolet and lend its support on multiple field refurbishments. Scotts believes that it is important to offer youth a safe reliable field and playing area. In addition to helping reduce injuries, a strong foundation of thick lush grass helps to create a beautiful outdoor environment that encourages children to spend time outdoors.
As the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball, Chevrolet has also expanded its support of MLB to youth baseball players in communities across the country through Chevrolet Youth Baseball (CYB) program.
In its seventh year, CYB has helped raise more than $13 million to aid local teams, affecting more than 2.7 million young people in communities across the country. This year about 1,600 Chevrolet deals are participating.
