Another Major League Baseball All-Star game, another Chevrolet vehicle to be awarded. The brand did just that, as Eric Hosmer was named Most Valuable Player after going 2-for-3 in the contest with a home run, two runs batted in and a run scored.
“Hosmer’s spectacular on-field performance tonight demonstrates to all baseball fans and especially our kids that hard work, determination and teamwork is what wins, and that is why Chevrolet is proud to present the MVP award,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet.
Chevrolet’s official sponsorship also means more than giving away vehicles; the brand has raised over $28 million over the past 10 years to help local baseball teams, secure gear, essentials and instruction.
“At Chevrolet, we appreciate the power of play and the positive effect that it has on our kids,” said Sweeney. “That positive effect on our kids and ultimately on our communities is why it is so important to us and our Chevrolet dealers to support baseball at every level.”
