Wheelers Chevrolet to provide Merrill Little League with new equipment, monetary contribution, and instructional clinics

Merrill, May 12, 2022 – Wheelers Chevrolet is partnering with Merrill Little League in Merrill, WI. Wheelers Chevrolet has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball & Softball program and Wisconsin Chevy Dealers to provide new equipment, invitations to free instructional clinics and an opportunity for community members to earn donations for their league via a test drive fundraiser.

“Playing baseball and softball helps kids develop skills like leadership, cooperation, and sportsmanship while bringing families and communities together to show their support. Wheelers Chevrolet and Chevrolet Youth Baseball & Softball are proud to participate in a sport that brings so many smiles to kids and families in Merrill.” said Mary Jo Wheeler, Owner of Wheelers Chevrolet. “Chevrolet believes in the power of play as a way for young people to build the skills needed to be successful in the future and supports the spirit of teamwork that baseball and softball instills in its players.”

2022 marks the seventeenth year of Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball & Softball program and has benefitted over 9 million players since it launched in 2006. Last year, more than 1,100 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.

Wheelers Chevrolet will present Merrill Little League an equipment kit that includes useful items such as equipment bags, first aid kits, batting tees, and ball buckets. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches, or instruction from Ripken Baseball.

In addition, Wheelers Chevrolet will present a check representing a one-time donation to Merrill Little League. Sponsored leagues across the country will have the chance to earn additional funds to support the league as community members take test drives at their partnering dealership.

In 2022, the Chevy Youth Baseball Test Drive Fundraising Opportunity is a program by which Wheelers Chevrolet will provide $20 on behalf of every customer that visits the event and takes a test drive in any one of the new Chevrolet vehicles in stock, up to a maximum of $2,000.
When visiting the event, please mention you are looking to support Marshfield Fastpitch through the Chevy Youth Baseball test-drive fundraising opportunity.

Join Wheelers Chevrolet on Saturday, June 11th, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm at Lions Park to participate.

We encourage everyone to take a look at what Chevrolet has to offer,” said Wheeler.
