So much for that gruff cartoon figure.
According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Matt Kemp and Cole Hamels will be the new spokesmen for Big League Chew.

Shredded gum brand Big League Chew will debut national packaging that will feature an active athlete — Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp — instead of the cartoon characters that have existed on more than 500 million pouches since Big League Chew first hit shelves 33 years ago. In June, a picture of Kemp will adorn the front of the gum package.
It's unclear if Hamels will also be a package boy.
