The Chevy Youth Baseball program is a community outreach program geared toward enhancing participation in America’s favorite pastime. Through the Chevy Youth Baseball Program, the sponsoring dealership will donate several assets to a youth league including Baseball Equipment Kits, a Chevy Vehicle-Giveaway Fundraising Opportunity, Youth Baseball Instructional Clinics and a Monetary Donation Check. At right, George Trovas (far right), and Tom Finnegan, representing the IBL's local partner, Community Motors, are shown with the recipients of the Chevy Youth Baseball T-shirts. The check in front was donated by the dealership to the IBL.

They are standing in front of new Chevrolet Equinox, similar to one that will be won by a lucky prize winner in our district. To purchase a $5 raffle ticket, contact any member of a Cedar Falls based IBL team or contact Fred Abraham. Four of the $5 dollars stays with the IBL team with the other $1 going to the IBL to support youth baseball in our area.
No baseball season can start without a ceremoniously delivered first pitch and the IBL is no exception. Tom Finnegan, representing the IBL's local partner in the Chevy Youth Baseball program Community Motors, displays his not quite Hall of Fame form in throwing the first pitch  on the League's opening weekend. The day started wet  and cool but warmed up as forty-two teams played. The IBL's 48 teams and 650 players will play over 600 games this summer, capped by a season ending tournament in each division.
