Burritt Motors Supports Oswego Little League

Burritt Motors is sponsoring Oswego Little League as part of Chevrolet’s nation-wide commitment to support youth sports. Over the course of the season, Burritt Motors will donate equipment to the league that includes: bags, baseballs, softballs, catcher’s gear, batting helmets, ball buckets, umpire equipment, scorebooks and first aid kits.

“We are extremely pleased to support Oswego Little League,” said Rich Burritt, sales manager and co-owner. ”In addition to donating equipment, the league will take part in The Chevy Youth Baseball Double Play Giveaway, which is a fundraiser that can earn them up to $10,000 with a grand prize giveaway of a 2010 Chevy Equinox.  Chevy Youth Baseball provides assistance to 200 teams in the Northeastern Region.”

Burritt Motors’ history dates back to 1955 in Hannibal when Chris’ grandfather, Elmer O. Burritt, purchased a Chevrolet franchise that he operated until 1963. To expand in a larger market, Chris’ father, Richard, purchased the assets of a Chevrolet dealership that had been located on Oswego’s East Third Street. About a year later, he built the present dealership on Rt. 104. The dealership celebrates its 55th anniversary this year and can be reached at (315) 343-8948, or at www.burrittmotors.com.
