“Playing the game of baseball helps kids develop skills like: leadership, cooperation, and sportsmanship; while bringing families and communities together to show their support. Quirk Chevrolet and Chevrolet Youth Baseball are proud to participate in a sport that brings so many smiles to kids and families in Manchester.” said Jeff Burditt, Controller for Quirk Chevrolet.
“Chevrolet believes in the power of play as a way for young people to build the skills needed to be successful in the future and supports the spirit of teamwork that baseball instills in its players.”
2019 marks the 14th year of Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball program and has benefitted over 7 million players since it launched. In 2018, more than 1,100 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.
Quirk Chevrolet will present Manchester Little League an equipment kit that includes useful items such as equipment bags, first aid kits, batting tees, and T-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches, or instructors from Ripken Baseball.
In addition, Quirk Chevrolet will present a check representing a one-time monetary contribution to Manchester Little League.
“Chevrolet vehicles are designed and built with busy families in mind, featuring a comprehensive suite of available safety features; technologies that make the journey more comfortable and engaging for the entire family; and the space and flexibility needed to haul people and cargo. We would encourage everyone to come take a look at what Chevrolet has to offer,” said Burditt.
