Derry, June 2, 2021 – Betley Chevrolet is partnering with the Derry American Little League in Derry. Betley Chevrolet has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball & Softball program to provide new equipment.

“Playing baseball and softball helps kids develop skills like leadership, cooperation, and sportsmanship while bringing families and communities together to show their support. Betley Chevrolet and Chevrolet Youth Baseball & Softball are proud to participate in a sport that brings so many smiles to kids and families in Derry,” said Jeff Platek, President for Betley Chevrolet. “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 and softball instill in its players.”
