Bob Grimm Chevrolet is partnering with the Morton Youth Baseball Association.

Bob Grimm 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 enter the free Chevrolet vehicle sweepstakes.

"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. Bob Grimm Chevrolet is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball," said Chuck Hart, vice president for Bob Grimm Chevrolet.

2013 marks Chevrolet's Youth Baseball program's eighth year, and since its introduction, it has aided local teams, affecting more than 3 million young people in communities where Chevrolet customers live, work and play.

In 2012, about 1,600 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.

Bob Grimm Chevrolet will present the MYBA with equipment kits with items including things like equipment bags, baseball buckets, baseballs, umpire ball bags, catcher equipment and Chevrolet Youth Baseball water bottles.

The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches and instructors from Ripken Baseball.

In addition, Bob Grimm Chevrolet will present a check representing a one-time monetary contribution to Morton youth baseball.

Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 2,000 free Sweepstakes entry forms to distribute within the community.

At the end of the entry period, five winners, one from each region, will win their choice between a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu or Chevrolet Traverse.

Each participating market will award a secondary prize.
