Different strokes for different folks we presume. Mike Trout, center fielder for the Los Angeles Angels, was named the 2015 MLB All-Star Most Valuable Player, and with the honor had the choice of two shiny-new Chevrolet vehicles.
Trout was offered either a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Midnight Edition, or a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro convertible. While we would have jumped all over the sixth-generation Camaro droptop, Trout decided on the Silverado Midnight Edition.
The 2015 Silverado Midnight Edition pitches a few special add-ons to the standard Silverado. The truck begins as a 2015 Silverado Z71, but an all-black front end, and body colored moldings, are applied to murder out the truck. 18-inch black-painted alloy wheels, and black bow tie badges round out the truck’s unique appearance.
“Mike’s on-field performance was All-Star caliber and worthy of one of Chevrolet’s All-Stars,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet, which has been the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball® since 2005. “Chevrolet also encourages future All-Stars through our more than 1,500 dealers who support Chevy Youth Baseball.”
Now entering its 10th year, Chevy Youth Baseball has helped raise more than $18 million to aid local teams, and offered more than 200 youth clinics, involving 5.2 million aspiring players.
