Spring is in the air.
Oh, and so is a Corvette Z06 and a Silverado pickup truck.
On Thursday morning, the two Chevys were hoisted high above the Detroit Tiger’s baseball stadium in what has become an annual rite of spring. The Corvette and Silverado will grace the Chevrolet Fountain at Comerica Park when the team takes the field during Major League Baseball’s opening day ceremony in just a few days.
“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, Chevrolet marketing.
Chevrolet has sponsored the fountain at Comerica park for the last six seasons and each year, two Chevrolet vehicles are chosen for the honor of being featured at the baseball stadium.
“We like to think of these vehicles as the Chevrolet cheering section to drive those centerfield home runs,” Edwards said.
