Bachman Chevrolet is excited to be participating in the Chevy Youth Baseball Program. Now in its ninth year, Chevy Youth Baseball is a grassroots initiative that establishes a positive relationship between local dealers and the communities they serve. As part of the program, Chevy Dealers across the country sponsor a local youth baseball league as a part of Chevrolet’s nationwide commitment to support youth sports, one community at a time.
This year, Bachman Chevrolet will be sponsoring the Jeffersontown Baseball League. Bachman Chevrolet Sales Manager Bill Mattingly, who has been heading up the program for the last four years, explains why this initiative is meaningful for him. “This program gives us an opportunity to partner with a little league here in town,” said Mattingly. “We chose J-town because they’re right in our backyard. We like to keep this initiative close to home where we can help these kids and their families.”
Bachman Chevrolet is supporting the local initiative by providing the J-town Baseball League with equipment such as tees, duffle bags, catcher’s equipment, bats, hitting nets and shirts among other items. A $500 check for additional equipment needs will also be donated.
In conjunction with the Chevy Youth Baseball Program, The Louisville Bats will be hosting baseball clinics on Tuesday, June 30 and Wednesday, July 1. The clinics are free to kids 12 or younger who wish to participate. Youth league players will spend half a day in various rotations such as fielding, hitting and pitching, instructed by the Louisville Bats players and coaches. Learn more about the clinics here.
Overall, the 2015 Chevrolet Baseball Program will provide assistance to approximately 350 leagues in the Northeastern region and Chevrolet dealers will contribute over $600,000 in monetary and equipment donations.
Bachman Chevrolet is proud to support the J-town Baseball Program here in Louisville, KY. “This is a fun event for us to be a part of,” says Mattingly. “We look forward to the arrival of baseball season and the opportunity to get to know the people in our community a little better.”
