MORRIS – Talty Chevrolet is partnering with the Morris Athletic Association in Morris. 

Talty Chevrolet has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment, a monetary contribution, invitations to free instructional clinics, and an opportunity for community members to earn additional donations for their league through a Test Drive fundraiser.

“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. Talty Chevrolet is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball,” said Ken Talty, owner of Talty Chevrolet, in a news release.

“There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball and Talty Chevrolet wants to combine America’s favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our families in Morris to enjoy,” Talty continued.

This year marks the program’s ninth year, and since its introduction it has benefited more than 3.5 million young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play. 

Talty Chevrolet will present Morris Athletic Association with an equipment kit that includes useful items, such as bags, batting tees, catcher’s gear, water bottles and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches, and instructors from Ripken Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association.

In addition, Talty Chevrolet will present a check as a one-time contribution to Morris Athletic Association. Sponsored leagues across the country will have the chance to earn additional funds as community members take test drives at their partnering dealership to help support the league.
