AKRON, NY -- Iconic bubblegum brand Big League Chew and the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum are once again teaming up for the “Whirl Series” promotion to give fans a chance to play ball and win big.

Starting June 17, and running through Aug. 17, fans can spin for a chance 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.

Fans can spin to win once a day for a chance to win Big League Chew bubblegum, merchandise or a 2019 Baseball Hall of Fame Yearbook. By registering online and clicking on the simulated spin button, contestants can win instant prizes and are automatically entered into the grand prize sweepstakes for a three-day, two-night trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. In addition, the grand prize winner will also have a chance to win $50,000 to donate to their local youth baseball or softball organization.

In addition to the trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, the grand prize winner will also receive a one-year Hall of Fame Benefactor Membership, VIP behind-the-scenes tour, guided museum tour and a $250 gift certificate to the Baseball Hall of Fame store. The winner will also receive one year’s supply of Big League Chew bubble gum and merchandise.

The “Whirl Series” contest is a part of a multi-year licensing and sponsorship deal between the two legendary brands, including Big League Chew products branded as “The Hall of Fame Bubble Gum,” as well as fan interactions through the Hall of Fame’s Youth Discovery Tours and various signature events, like the Hall of Fame Classic legends baseball game held each Memorial Day weekend in Cooperstown.

Invented by former left-handed pitcher Rob Nelson, Big League Chew started from humble beginnings in the Portland Mavericks bullpen in 1977. For 39 years, the iconic pouches packed with shredded, flavorful bubble gum have gained a wide fan base among all ages, having sold more than 800 million pouches to date.
