Sandlot Stories: Chew Like a Big Leaguer
Sitting in a bullpen one summer night long ago, Portland Maverick lefthander Rob Nelson came up with a fun new bubblegum idea: shredded gum in a pouch. He called it Big League Chew.
"Nothing goes better than bubble gum, which is why we are thrilled to team up with our friends at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum," said Rob Nelson, inventor of Big League Chew. "We are excited to connect with baseball fans and families who grew up chewing Big League Chew and together, we look forward to providing fans of all ages with memories that will last a lifetime."
With more than 35 years of success, museum visitors can join us for an inside look at the iconic bubble gum pouches with Rob Nelson himself.
Hall of Fame President, Jeff Idelson added "The image of your favorite major league player or your own teammate happily blowing a bubble in the dugout or intensely working his or her gym during a pressure-packed moment are part of every fan's baseball memories".
This program will take place in the Hall of Fame's Bullpen Theater on the first floor. Please join us a the conclusion of this event for an exclusive opportunity to learn the art of bubblegum bubble blowing from Rob himself in the Hall of Fame's Sculpture Garden.
