Many people actually missed the fact that Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco received a 2014 Corvette Stingray after this past Super Bowl victory, but Chevrolet made sure you knew about the MLB All Star’s new toy!
Chevrolet is an official sponsor of Major League Baseball and runs campaigns throughout the country with dealers sponsoring local Little League teams as well as giving away baseball field make overs.
After last nights All Star Game at Citi Field, the Yankees relief pitcher Mariano Rivera did what he’s been doing for the last 15 years – closing out games. Entering the game and taking the mound in the 8th inning, the reliever shut down the National League and helped the American League win the mid-summer classic for the first time since 2009.
For his efforts, Mo Rivera was awarded the Ted Williams MVP award and takes home the keys to a Lagnua Blue 2014 Corvette Stingray.
US Vice President of Sales and Service for Chevrolet Don Johnson presented the greatest reliever of all time the new Corvette Stingray as well as the opportunity to make over a youth little league baseball diamond in the city of Mariano’s choice.
Mariano thanked his family and all the fans, as well as the players in the game for allowing him the opportunity to play for all these years. He will officially retire at the end of the season.
Here is the video of #42 Mariano Rivera being presented the MVP and accepting the new C7 Corvette Stingray.
