Chevy is celebrating its sponsorship of the MLB by putting a Corvette and Silverado right behind center field at Comerica Park in Detroit. Tigers fans were thrilled to see the redesigned Comerica Chevrolet Fountain, which puts two of Chevy’s favorites on display for an entire season. After hours of hoisting the cars in place with a special crane, they’ll now be visible for more than 3 million expected visitors.
According to Chevy, the Corvette Z06 and Midnight Edition Silverado were specially chosen to represent the brand this year. Both represent Chevy’s commitment to quality, highlighting rugged capability and high-octane performance.
“As the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball, what better way could Chevrolet show our love of the game than by giving our vehicles a bird’s eye view of our hometown team?” asked Paul Edwards, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. He goes on to say that, “We like to think of these vehicles as the Chevrolet cheering section to drive those centerfield home runs.”
The fountain also has a host of water displays and sound effects for any time a player from the home team hits a homerun. We at Bradshaw Chevrolet just hope they don’t put any dents in the two display models.
