Sitting in a bullpen one
summer night long ago, Portland Mavericks lefthander Rob Nelson came up with a
fun new bubble gum idea: shredded gum in a pouch. He called it Big League Chew.
Rob's teammate, Jim Bouton, found a gum company to make Big League Chew, and in
no time at all it became the "must-have" bubble gum for players of
all ages. Today, Big League Chew is still the fun gum that keeps your mouth
from getting dry when the game is on the line. It is the #1 selling shredded
bubble gum in the world with over 800 million pouches sold!
