Kevin Youkilis of the Red Sox has a new job: When not slugging for the home town team, he’ll be moonlighting as a pitchman for Herb Chambers Companies., a network of 46 automotive dealerships in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
The company said Youkilis has agreed to a two-year endorsement deal. The agreement calls for the baseball star to appear in Herb Chambers commercials and to provide autographed items to dealerships for customer appreciation and community events. In exchange, Herb Chambers Cos. said it will provide Youkilis with a two-year lease on an Audi A8 from Chambers’ Audi Burlington dealership.
