DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio – (May 12, 2017) – Nathan’s Famous, the Official Beef Frank of Major League Baseball (MLB), is continuing its efforts to aid youth baseball organizations across the country. Friday evening, Nathan’s Famous brought the taste and feel of Coney Island to Cottell Park in Deerfield Township, Ohio, for the children and families of the Mason Youth Organization to enjoy.
A youth-serving organization, the Mason Youth Organization is dedicated to providing Ohio-area with the opportunity play in competitive sports throughout the year. Their goal is to teach healthy living and leadership through sports activities.
Nathan’s Famous invited Mason Youth Organization children and parents to enjoy the Coney Island-themed mobile unit for a fun evening filled with boardwalk games, such as pop-a-shot and skee-ball, a miniature carousel, a Zoltar® Fortune Teller coupon machine, and Nathan’s Famous Premium Beef Franks prior to their baseball and softball games.
As part of the day of fun, Nathan’s Famous also donated free beef franks for a year along with a $1,000 Kroger gift card for free groceries to be used by Mason Little League, Mason Challenger League and Mason Youth Softball. This donation will assist with concessions to the hundreds of children who play baseball, softball and T-ball in Mason, Ohio.
“We are proud to continue our support of organizations that benefit youth baseball, softball, and keeping our children active and having fun,” said Wayne Norbitz, Nathan’s Famous executive board member and former 26-year president. “The Mason Youth Organization is a wonderful group of dedicated volunteers and we’re honored to celebrate their work in the community.”
The world-famous brand is a devoted sponsor of the PLAY BALL initiative, which is MLB’s collective effort to encourage young people and communities to participate in baseball- or softball-related activities, including formal leagues and events as well as casual forms of play. In particular, the initiative highlights the many ways the game can be played, including activities outside of traditionally organized baseball and softball leagues and tournaments, ranging from playing catch, stickball and participating in skills competitions like "Pitch, Hit & Run."
Nathan’s Famous is not only the Official Hot Dog of MLB, but also the New York Yankees, New York Mets, St. Louis Cardinals, and Miami Marlins, and the Official Beef Frank of the Cincinnati Reds.
Smithfield Foods is the licensee of Nathan's Famous pre-packaged hot dogs, selling a wide variety of beef franks at supermarkets across the country including natural casing, skinless, bun-length, 50 percent reduced fat, angus, and more.
