Big League Chew
History of Big League Chew
Forty years after its creation by the former minor-league pitcher, Rob Nelson, the familiar pouch of shredded Big League Chew gum has made many home runs. Inspired by replacing chewing tobacco with a healthier alternative, Nelson imagined up shredded bubblegum and it’s become a shareable experience. Boasting induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, this flavorful chew now markets itself as “The Hall of Fame Bubble Gum,” with an official endorsement printed on the package. The sport of chewing and spitting welcomed this fruity alternative and it’s now known as one of the most popular brands of baseball candy.
