Chevrolet was on hand to present a 2019 Camaro SS coupe to the 2018 Ted Williams Most Valuable Player, Alex Bregman, at the MLB All-Star game in Washington D.C. on Tuesday.
It was the third baseman for the Houston Astros’ first All-Star game appearance and Bregman hit the game-winning home run in extra innings for the American League. Bregman was given the choice of a 2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS or a 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2.
The 2019 Camaro sports mild updates over the 2018 model, most significantly, a refreshed front and rear fascia. Bregman’s Camaro features a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine producing 455 horsepower paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The 2019 Camaro, when equipped with the 10-speed auto, also gains custom launch control and line-lock functions.
Chevrolet remains the official sponsor of the MLB and the official partner for the MLB’s “Play Ball” initiative—a collective effort to encourage young people to participate in baseball- and softball-related activities.
