Fall Classics: Chevy Trucks Go Yard


chevy dodgers truck frontThere’s nothing more American than baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and…well you’ve heard it many times…Chevrolet. To prove it’s deeply woven into the American fabric, Chevrolet has worked its way into baseball stadiums all across the U.S. In Los Angeles, California, also known as Dodgertown, Chevrolet has been quite generous with its promotions. Just a few of the ways it’s working its way into the hearts and minds of Dodgers fans includes handing out Dodgers bags (once you’ve filled out an electronic form so they can send you updates, promotions, etc.), putting two trucks in the stadium corners and taunting players to smack a ball and hit the side of the truck (if it happens, Chevrolet will donate $100,000 to the Dodgers charity organization), and finally, a Silverado 1500 giveaway at the Fan Appreciation Day.

We first learned about the giveaway truck after Chevrolet posted a Facebook photo of it being wrapped, but had to wait until we were at the stadium for the big unveiling. The truck was won by an incredibly lucky fan, and we hope she doesn’t take off the wrap, especially since the Dodgers may be headed toward a World Series title.

DodgerstruckWhile this Buzzardette is partial to the Dodgers, Chevrolet has a presence in just about every ballpark in the U.S. due to its long-standing association with Major League Baseball. As the official sponsor since 2005, Chevrolet sponsored the Home Run Derby this past June, as well as intertwining advertorial awareness through its Diamonds & Dreams campaign that has awarded more than 40 professional field makeovers to needy youth baseball programs with the help of local dealerships.

ABC_0730AZWe applaud Chevrolet and GM for being a part of America’s pastime, and for donating millions of dollars toward worthwhile charities that will help improve the quality of life for a lot of kids.
