Subway and Little League Baseball

SUBWAY® restaurants, the world’s largest restaurant chain is doing a wonderful thing! For the third year in a row this great sandwich loving company has sponsored what they call The SUBWAY® Baseball DeSIGNS Tour. What kind of tour is might be thinking. 

The SUBWAY® Baseball DeSIGNS Tour includes more than 40 baseballs designed by young artists and signed by celebrities and athletes including: musician Katy Perry, actor Zac Efron, rock band Maroon 5, gold medal-winning swimmer Michael Phelps, pro football’s Drew Brees,  and baseball star Ryan Howard. For a complete list of celebrities click  here.

The tour will visit four U.S. cities concluding with a final stop at the Little League® Baseball World Series (LLBWS) from Aug. 19-28, where the baseballs will then be auctioned off to the general public with all proceeds benefiting the Little League® Baseball Urban Initiative program which helps fund start-ups, developments, equipment, clinics and field maintenance for inner-city youth leagues and teams.

Sounds pretty great, doesn't it! A baseball signed by Zac Efron? He's pretty cute, you know. If you are interested in bidding on any of these fun baseballs you can do so on Ebay
