Jimmy Britt Chevrolet Buick GMC partnered with Lake Oconee Academy in Greensboro, and joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment, invitations to free instructional clinics, and a monetary donation.
“Playing the game of baseball helps kids develop skills like leadership, cooperation, and sportsmanship while bringing families and communities together to show their support. Jimmy Britt Chevrolet Buick GMC and Chevrolet Youth Baseball are proud to participate in a sport that brings so many smiles to kids and families in Greene County,” said Jeremy Parrish, general manager/partner of Jimmy Britt Chevrolet Buick
GMC. “Chevrolet believes in the power of play as a way for young people to build the skills needed to be successful in the future and supports the spirit of teamwork that baseball instills in its players.”
2019 marks the 14th year of Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball program and has benefitted over 7 million players since it launched. In 2018, more than 1,100 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.
Jimmy Britt Chevrolet Buick GMC presented Lake Oconee Academy with an equipment kit that includes useful items such as equipment bags, first aid kits, batting tees, and T-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches, or instructors from Ripken Baseball.

“Chevrolet vehicles are designed and built with busy families in mind, featuring a comprehensive suite of available safety features; technologies that make the journey more comfortable and engaging for the entire family; and the space and flexibility needed to haul people and cargo. We would encourage everyone to come take a look at what Chevrolet has to offer,” said Parrish.
