“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. Jack Phelan Chevrolet is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball,” said Bob Rogacki, Customer Service Manager, for Jack Phelan Chevrolet.
“There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball and Jack Phelan Chevrolet wants to combine America’s favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our families in Lyons to enjoy,” added Rogacki.
2014 marks Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball program’s ninth year, and since its introduction has helped aid local teams, benefiting more than 3.5 million young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play.
