The Valdosta Daily Times

VALDOSTA — Prince Automotive of Valdosta is supporting the Valdosta community through its partnership with the Valdosta/Lowndes County Recreation Department. The dealership has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment, instructional clinics, and a monetary donation.

“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,” said Jay Prince, VP for Prince Automotive of Valdosta.

“There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball and Prince Automotive of Valdosta wants to combine America’s favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our customers and families in Valdosta to enjoy,” added Prince.

The Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is beginning its eighth 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.

Prince Automotive of Valdosta will present the Valdosta/Lowndes County Rec. with 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, Prince Automotive of Valdosta will present a check representing a one-time monetary donation to Valdosta/Lowndes County Parks and Recreation.

“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 Prince.

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