Big League Chew, Baseball Hall of Fame Promotion Brings Back Baseball, Virtually

Akron, NY — Ford Gum & Machine Co., Inc. is partnering its Big League Chew brand with the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum for a consumer promotion this summer. The “Hall of Flavors” online game and sweepstakes June 15 through August 15, with a chance for participants to win an all-expense paid trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY, and $50,000 to support their hometown youth baseball or softball program. The Hall of Flavors game and sweepstakes is a part of a multi-year licensing and sponsorship deal between the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Big League Chew.

“This year we are celebrating 40 years of bubble gum fun, and while the baseball season might look a little different right now, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the love of the game – and gum – together,” says Rob Nelson, inventor of Big League Chew. “We look forward to bringing the Baseball Hall of Fame and our legendary pouches and flavors directly to customers in a fun, interactive way.”

To participate, consumers enter a code found on the backs of pouches of Big League Chew at the BigLeagueChew.com/HallofFlavors website for  a chance to win daily prizes including Big League Chew bubble gum, t-shirts, and 2020 Baseball Hall of Fame yearbooks.

“The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is proud to partner with Big League Chew to celebrate the National Pastime through the Hall of Flavors game and sweepstakes,” says Sean Gahagan, the Museum’s vice-president of retail merchandising and licensing. “A trip to Cooperstown is the quintessential baseball experience, just like enjoying Big League Chew on a sunny day at the ballpark.”

In addition to an all-expense paid trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, the grand prize winner receives a one-year Hall of Fame Benefactor Membership, VIP behind-the-scenes tour, a guided Museum tour and a $250 gift certificate to the Baseball Hall of Fame Store, as well as a one year’s supply of Big League Chew bubble gum and merchandise.
