Baltimore Orioles become first major league team to feature Big League Chew in dugouts and bullpens
Akron, N.Y. (March 27, 2018) – Iconic bubble gum brand Big League Chew® announced today a partnership with the Baltimore Orioles for the 2018 season. The partnership includes placement of Big League Chew bubble gum in home and away dugouts and bullpens at Oriole Park at Camden Yards for players and coaches to enjoy. This is the first partnership between Big League Chew and a Major League Baseball team.
“Nearly 40 years ago, I was sitting in a bullpen in Portland, Oregon dreaming of all of the possibilities for Big League Chew. For it to make its major league debut in the O’s dugouts and bullpens is a dream come true,” said Rob Nelson, founder and inventor of Big League Chew. “I can’t thank the Baltimore Orioles enough for calling up Big League Chew to the big club and I’m so excited to see those Big League Bubbles!”
Players and coaches will be able to enjoy pouches of Big League Chew’s famous shredded bubble gum and gumballs in specially designed buckets in both home and away dugouts, bullpens and clubhouses.
“Baseball and bubble gum have always been a natural fit. We’re excited to partner with the Baltimore Orioles and have Big League Chew in one of the most iconic ballparks in the country for the Orioles and visiting teams to enjoy,” said Steve Green, Sr. Vice President, Sales & Marketing at Ford Gum.
