What is more American than Chevrolet and baseball? And Register Chevrolet is quick to be a part of America’s favorite past time.

Register Chevrolet has been supporting local Little League through its youth baseball program for eight years.

During that span, the Hernando County business with deep roots dating back more than 50 years, has helped many local youth teams. In fact, Register Chevrolet’s support has affected more than 3 million local youths in communities where their customers live, work and play.

“Youth baseball provides positive and productive life lessons for young people across America,” said Stuart Smith, president of Register Chevrolet. “The Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is an extension of Chevrolet’s commitment to baseball, community and families. Register Chevrolet is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball.” 

Register Chevrolet recently joined forces with the West Hernando Little League in Spring Hill to provide new equipment, opportunities for free instructional clinics and monetary donations.

In fact, in 2012, the company participated along with 1,600 dealerships across the country to provide support for local youth programs.

Register Chevrolet presented the West Hernando Little League with kits containing equipment bags, baseball buckets, umpire ball bags, batting tees and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. Each bag held $25 worth of merchandise.

Register Chevrolet will also sponsor youth clinics that feature current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches and Ripken Baseball instructors.

“There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball,” added Smith. “Register Chevrolet wants to combine America’s favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our families in Brooksville and Spring Hill to enjoy.”

Greg Kowzan, Register Chevrolet’s general sales manager, added, “We sponsor West Hernando Little League and their main field is called Register Chevrolet Field. We also sponsor Chevy Youth Baseball.”

Opening day ceremonies were held on March 16 at Anderson Snow Park. Both leagues were given 2,000 tickets to sell, which will donate up to $10,000, according to Kowzan.

“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 Smith.
