Chevrolet Takes Center Field at Comerica Park

MT. PLEASANT, Mich -- The Detroit Tiger's 2019 season kicks off with the installation of two all-new vehicles atop the center field fountain at Comerica Park, a Motor City tradition now in its 10th year. This year's showpieces? The red 2019 Chevy Blazer RS and a silver 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss. 

These vehicles enhance the ballpark's skyline view and complement the majestic "Chevy Fountain" that graces centerfield at Comerica Park. With more than 8,400 pounds of sheet metal hoisted into position by a crane, the vehicles remind fans in the stadium and at home of Chevy's historic relationship with American baseball and it's deep roots within Detroit. 

Paul Edwards, the U.S. Vice President of Chevrolet Marketing celebrated this year's installment saying: 

"This decade-old tradition allows us to celebrate Chevy's connection to baseball in our hometown, and it's a telltale sign that Opening Day is almost here...the all-new Blazer and Silverado represent innovation, endurance and personality - much like our great city of Detroit" 

The attention-grabbing Blazer and the rugged Silverado showcase the quality, dependability and reliability needed to withstand the six-month baseball season, and with their bird's eye view, these heavy-hitting vehicles will cheer on the Detroit Tigers at every home game. 

Chris Granger, Group President of Sports and Entertainment for Ilitch Holdings, Inc also released a statement regarding this time-honored tradition, saying: 

"Chevrolet and the Detroit Tigers are two of the Motor City's most iconic brands, and we're honored to be celebrating the 10-year mark of this great tradition...Chevy continues to be a great partner, not only to the Tigers, but with the entire Major League Baseball family as well." 

This is evidenced by Chevy's involvement with the sport on so many levels. Their connection to baseball extends from the backyard to the major leagues as the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball and the Official Automotive Sponsor of the PLAY BALL initiative. Through Chevy Cares programs like Chevy Youth Baseball, kids are empowered to stay active, build self-esteem and learn teamwork-skills that can help them on and off the field. 

Since the Chevy Youth Baseball program launched in 2006, more than 8 million kids have participated in nearly 2,000 free clinics with participation from current and former players and coaches. More than 1,300 Chevy dealers across the U.S. have donated nearly 163,000 equipment kits and jerseys to encourage the next generation of baseball players.
