The 2015 MLB All-Star Game Most Valuable Player, Mike Trout, chose a Silverado Midnight Edition during the MVP award ceremony presented by Chevrolet at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati on Tuesday night.
Chevrolet gave Trout, who hit a home run on the fourth pitch of the game and scored another run in the American League’s 6-3 victory, his choice between the sixth-generation Camaro Convertible and a Silverado Midnight Edition.
This was Trout’s second consecutive All-Star MVP award. As the 2014 MLB All-Star Game MVP, Trout chose a Corvette Stingray.
“Mike’s on-field performance was All-Star caliber and worthy of one of Chevrolet’s All-Stars,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet, which has been the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball® since 2005. “Chevrolet also encourages future All-Stars through our more than 1,500 dealers who support Chevy Youth Baseball.”
In its 10th year, Chevy Youth Baseball has helped raise more than $18 million to aid local teams, offered more than 200 youth clinics, involving more than 5.2 million young people across America.
The Silverado Midnight Edition that Trout chose begins as a black Z71, and adds an all-black front end with body-colored grille, bumper, headlamp bezels, tow hooks and fog lamps; black side moldings and beltline moldings; 18-inch black painted alloy wheels special Z71 badges on the doors and black Chevrolet bowties front and rear.
