Merit Chevrolet of Maplewood, one of the 55 Chevy dealers from the metro that partnered with local youth baseball leagues in 2013, concluded a successful season with the East Twins Babe Ruth League. Merit Chevrolet provided the East Twins Babe Ruth League with new equipment, a monetary contribution and an opportunity for community members to enter the free Chevrolet vehicle sweepstakes this past year.

“Chevrolet has a long history with baseball and we’re glad we were able to bring that tradition to our youth leagues in Maplewood,” said Merit Chevrolet general manager Tom Krebsbach. “We truly enjoy being involved with the classic American tradition of youth baseball.”

Equipment donated by Merit Chevrolet included equipment bags, baseball buckets, practice hitting nets, umpire ball bags, batting tees and T-shirts.

In 2013, more than 1,600 Chevrolet dealers participated in Chevy Youth Baseball. Since the program began in 2006, Chevy has made a positive impact on more than 3.6 million children by bringing a unique experience to their community.
