Edwards Storm Lake Goes to Bat for Storm Lake Youth Baseball Association

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Edwards Storm Lake is partnering with the Storm Lake Youth Baseball Association in Storm Lake.

Edwards Storm Lake has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment and an opportunity for community members to earn donations for their league via a Test Drive fund raiser.

“Playing the game of baseball helps kids develop skills like leadership, cooperation and sportsmanship while bringing families and communities together to show their support. Edwards Storm Lake and Chevrolet Youth Baseball are proud to participate in a sport that brings so many smiles to kids and families in Storm Lake,” said Matt Pearson, Sales & Leasing Specialist for Edwards Storm Lake. “Chevrolet believes that in play, there are possibilities and supports the spirit of teamwork that baseball instills in its players.”

2017 marks Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball program’s 12th year, and since its introduction has helped aid local teams, benefiting more than 6. 7 million young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play. In 2016, more than 1,500 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.

Edwards Storm Lake presented an equipment kit which includes useful items such as equipment bags, balls, scorebooks, industrial-strength batting tees, ball buckets, and pitching screens.

In addition, Edwards Storm Lake presented a check for $500 representing a monetary contribution to Storm Lake Youth Baseball Association.

The league will also have the chance to additional funds as community members take test drives at Edwards Storm Lake to help support the league.

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

“Chevrolet vehicles are designed and built for families, safety and fun, so we encourage young people and their parents to make a Chevrolet the official vehicle of their household,” said Pearson.
