An All-Star MVP, the 2019 Camaro, and Chevrolet Inspire Kids Through Baseball
MT. PLEASANT, Mich. -- The 2018 Ted Williams Most Valuable Player, Alex Bregman of the Houston Astros, was given his choice of either the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS or the trail-ready Colorado ZR2. He chose the redesigned Camaro during the All-Star Game MVP ceremony hosted by Chevrolet earlier this month at Nationals Park in Washington.
This year's All-Star Game was Bregman's first appearance as a participant, during which he hit the game-winning home run for the American league.
“Bregman set a great example for baseball fans and especially our kids by hustling hard for the entire game and demonstrating exceptional teamwork — essential qualities to win on the field, in the classroom, and in life — and that is why Chevrolet is proud to present the MVP award,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet.
Since 2005, Chevrolet has been the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball and is also an Official Partner of Play Ball, a collective effort by the MLB to encourage young people to get involved in baseball and softball. Through the Chevrolet Youth Baseball program in partnership with dealerships across the country, Chevrolet has donated more than 150,000 equipment kits, raised more than $36 million, and offered more than 1,800 free skills clinics - all of which has positively impacted more than 7 million boys and girls across the United States.
“At Chevrolet, we appreciate the positive effect that playing sports has on our kids, and that is why it is so important for our brand and our dealers to support baseball at every level,” said Sweeney.
