Santa Paula Chevrolet is providing Santa Paula Little League with new equipment, monetary donation and instructional clinics

Santa Paula Chevrolet is partnering with the Santa Paula Little League. Santa Paula Chevrolet has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment, instructional clinics, a monetary donation and an opportunity to raise an additional $10,000 through a Chevrolet vehicle sweepstakes. The program kicks off March 1 and runs through July 15, 2012.

“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.  Santa Paula Chevrolet is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball,” said John Macik, General Manager for Santa Paula Chevrolet. 

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

The Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is beginning its seventh year, and has helped raise more than $13 million to aid local teams, affecting more than 2.7 million young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play.  This year, about 1,600 Chevrolet dealers are participating. 

Santa Paula Chevrolet presented the Santa Paula Little League with 10 new equipment kits complete with equipment bags, baseball buckets, whiffle balls, hitting net, batting tees and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring former MLB/MiLB players and coaches and instructors from Ripken Baseball.

In addition, Santa Paula Chevrolet presented a check of $1,000 representing a one-time monetary donation to Santa Paula Little League.  The teams also will have an opportunity to raise additional funds through a Chevrolet Youth Baseball Fund-raiser.  Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 2,000 fund-raiser entry tickets to distribute for a suggested donation, and each league will keep 100 percent of the proceeds it raises.  At the end of the fund-raiser, five winners - one from each region - will win the Chevrolet Equinox or Chevrolet Cruze vehicle of their choice. Each participating market will award a secondary prize of a television and Blu-Ray player. 

In addition to its commitment to youth baseball, Chevrolet also is the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball(tm). 

“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 Macik. 

As part of Chevrolet’s continued support of communities and youth baseball, Chevrolet is also bringing back Diamonds & Dreams for its third year. 

Participants can enter to win a baseball field makeover for their community.  Chevrolet will award 12 weekly field makeover prizes and the opportunity to win the Grand Prize of an all-new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu.  The sweepstakes will begin in mid-April; visit for more information.
