Chevy Gives All-Star MVP Mike Trout a Corvette Stingray
As Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball® (which it has been since 2005), Chevrolet gave Mike Trout a Corvette Stingray. Trout, who was the 2014 Ted Williams MLB All-Star Game Most Valuable Player, had a choice between the 2014 North American Car of the Year (the Stingray) and the 2014 North American Truck of the Year (Silverado). We think he made the right choice.
A second Corvette Stingray will be put up for auction at ChevyBaseball.com. The Stingray’s hood was autographed by the game’s all-star players and coaches, but it will also come with a factory original hood for driving. All proceeds will go to charity. Bidding on the charity Stingray will stay open until 5pm EDT on August 1.
“Tonight, we honor the achievements of Mike Trout, the 2014 All-Star Game Most Valuable Player, while we showcase our own MVPs, the Corvette Stingray and Chevrolet Silverado,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Marketing, at the presentation. “We hope many of our fellow baseball fans join us to help raise funds for a worthy cause.”
Chevy also donated a commemorative Stingray hood to the MLB and the Major League Baseball Players Association for auction. This hood was signed by the players and coaches, as well, and the proceeds with benefit MLB Charities and Players Trust.
