Jeff Gordon Chevrolet & 2012 Chevy Youth Baseball

Jeff Gordon Chevrolet offers Wilmington a "Dream" chance at a baseball field makeover!

Wilmington, NC – Jeff Gordon Chevrolet announced today its continued support of Wilmington youth baseball and baseball fans through the Chevrolet "Diamonds & Dreams" program. Jeff Gordon Chevrolet encourages residents to register online at for a chance to win one of 12 field makeovers and the grand prize of an all-new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco.*

Starting today, participants can enter through for a chance to win a refurbished baseball field for their community or another community they feel is deserving. One winner will be chosen each week for up to 12 weeks through July 22.

"Every young person wants and deserves a 'dream' baseball diamond, and we offer them a chance to get one," said General Sales Manager Rudy Carter, for Jeff Gordon Chevrolet .

In its third year, "Diamonds & Dreams" has already awarded 25 youth field makeovers across the country.

"From the backyards to the big leagues, Chevrolet is committed to community and youth baseball and giving back to where our customers live, work and play," said Phil Caruso, Chevrolet National Promotions Manager.

Renovations of the 12 field makeovers will be administered through Ripken Design, a division of Ripken Baseball, the company owned and operated by National Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr., and 12-year Major League Baseball® veteran Bill Ripken.

"I have been working with Chevy for about two decades and it is a relationship that I value a great deal, said Cal Ripken. "Together we are positively impacting kids through baseball at the grassroots level and giving them safe places to play. It is a very gratifying part of what we do, and I appreciate Chevrolet making us a part of this terrific effort."

The Official Lawn Care Company of Major League Baseball®, Scotts®, will continue to partner with Chevrolet and lend its support on multiple field refurbishments. Scotts believes that it is important to offer youth a safe, reliable field and playing area. In addition to helping reduce injuries, a strong foundation of thick and lush grass helps to create a beautiful outdoor environment that encourages children to spend time outdoors.

As the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball®, Chevrolet has also expanded its support of MLB® to youth baseball players in communities across the country through the Chevrolet Youth Baseball (CYB) program. In its seventh year, CYB has helped raise more than $13 million to aid local teams, affecting more than 2.7 million young people in communities across the country. This year, about 1,600 Chevrolet dealers are participating.
