Jim Ellis Chevrolet wraps up 2014 baseball season partnership with City of Chamblee.

We're glad we were able to extend Chevrolet's commitment to spreading joyful play to the members of our community.

Jim Ellis Chevrolet, one of 37 Chevrolet dealers from the Atlanta area that partnered with local youth baseball leagues for the 2014 baseball program, has concluded a successful season with City of Chamblee. Jim Ellis Chevrolet provided City of Chamblee with new equipment, a monetary contribution and an opportunity for community members to raise funds for the league via a Test Drive fundraiser.

"We're glad we were able to extend Chevrolet's commitment to spreading joyful play to the members of our community," said Jim Ellis Chevrolet Youth Sports Coordinator Mike Champness.

Jim Ellis Chevrolet partnered with the City of Chamblee because of the league's proximity to the dealership. Equipment donated by Jim Ellis Chevrolet included items such as bags, batting tees, catcher's gear, water bottles and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also included youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches, and instructors from Ripken Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association.

"We truly enjoyed being involved with City of Chamblee this year," said Champness. "This partnership gave us the opportunity to support the love of the game and we are thrilled to have achieved such positive results for the community."

In 2014, more than 1,600 Chevrolet dealers participated in Chevy Youth Baseball. Since the program began in 2006, Chevrolet has made a positive impact on more than 3.6 million children by bringing a unique experience to their community.
