DERRY — In the spirit of community collaboration and teamwork taught through youth sports, Betley Chevrolet is supporting Derry Little League through the Chevy Youth Baseball Program.
This sponsorship will include both monetary and equipment donations during the spring 2012 youth baseball season.
Chevy Youth Baseball is a grassroots initiative that establishes a positive relationship between local dealers and the communities they serve. Betley Chevrolet is sponsoring Derry Little League as a part of Chevrolet's nationwide commitment to support youth sports, one community at a time.
Over the course of the season, Betley Chevrolet will donate equipment to the league which may include: equipment bags, baseballs, softballs, catcher's gear, batting helmets, ball buckets, umpire's equipment, coach's kits, break-away bases, bat racks and first aid kits.
In addition, each sponsored league will take part in the "Chevy Youth Baseball Double Play Giveaway" which is a fundraiser that can earn each league $10,000. The "Chevy Youth Baseball Double Play Giveaway" features a grand prize of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu, along with other prizes, courtesy of the local Chevrolet dealership.
Youth baseball 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 Derry Little League that will be filled with exciting games and an enhanced experience for the teams through the equipment and cash donations," said Jeff Platek of Betley Chevrolet. "Chevy Youth Baseball is just one example of how committed our dealership is to supporting the youth and families in our community."
