Deacon Jones Auto Park Goes to Bat for Princeton Little Tar Heel League

Deacon Jones Auto Park to provide Princeton Little Tar Heel League with new equipment, monetary contribution and instructional clinics

Princeton, June 1, 2015 - Deacon Jones Auto Park is partnering with the Princeton Little Tar Heel League. Deacon Jones Auto Park 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 via a Test Drive fundraiser.

“Playing the game of baseball helps kids develop skills like leadership, cooperation, and sportsmanship while bringing families and communities together to show their support. Deacon Jones Auto Park and Chevrolet Youth Baseball are proud to participate in a sport that brings so many kids and families together.” said Christina Jones, Customer Relations for Deacon Jones Auto Park. “Chevrolet believes that in play, there are possibilities and supports the spirit of teamwork that baseball instills in its players.”

2015 marks Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball program’s tenth year, and since its introduction has helped aid local teams, benefiting more than 3.5 million young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play. In 2014, more than 1,600 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.

Deacon Jones Auto Park will present the Princeton Little Tar Heel League 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, Deacon Jones Auto Park will present a check representing a one-time monetary contribution to Princeton Little Tar Heel League. “At Deacon Jones, we have been committed to the community for over 37 years and love opportunities like this to show our support,” said Trey Jones. 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.

In addition to its commitment to youth baseball, Chevrolet also is the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball™.

“Chevrolet vehicles are designed and built for families, safety and fun, so we encourage young people and their parents to make a Chevrolet the official vehicle of their household,” said Jones.
