Andrew Chevrolet Hits Homerun for Area Youth Baseball

Andrew Chevrolet Donates More Than $1,700 in cash and Sports Equipment to Beckum Stapleton Little League


Glendale, September 13, 2011- Andrew Chevrolet, one of 19 Chevrolet dealers from the Milwaukee area that partnered with local youth baseball leagues for the 2011 baseball season, raised nearly $32,400 in total donations from the dealerships and private parties. In addition to monetary support, Andrew Chevrolet provided Beckum Stapleton Little League with equipment donations, an opportunity to raise (and keep) up the $10,000 through a unique fundraiser, and participation in a baseball clinic led by Milwaukee Brewers and Ripken Baseball.


“Chevrolet has a long history with baseball and we’re glad we were able to bring that commitment to our youth leagues in Glendale,” said Frank Kelbel, General Manager, for Andrew Chevrolet.

“The instructional clinic was the highlight of the season for many of the kids. They had a blast – and, frankly, we did too.”

Andrew Chevrolet partnered with the Beckum Stapleton Little League because of the league’s proximity to the dealership. Equipment donated by Andrew Chevrolet included equipment bags, ball buckets, dugout managers and t-shirts. In addition, the dealership helped donate either a Chevy Cruze or a Chevy Equinox to be used as a fundraiser by the league. The winner of the fundraiser got to choose one of the two vehicles.

“We are delighted to be involved with the American tradition of youth baseball,” said Kelbel, of Andrew Chevrolet. “Sponsoring Beckum Stapleton Little League gave us the opportunity to illustrate our commitment to the youth and families in Glendale and we’re glad to have achieved such positive outcome for the community.”


In 2011, more than 1,200 Chevrolet dealers participated in Chevy Youth Baseball. Now in its sixth year, more than $14 million has been contributed to youth baseball in the communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play. For more information about Chevy Youth Baseball, visit
