Nathan’s Famous® Gives Back to Mount Vernon RBI

MOUNT VERNON, N.Y., June 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nathan’s Famous®, the Official Hot Dog of Major League Baseball (MLB), donated free hot dogs for a year to the Mount Vernon Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) League, as well as a $1,000 gift card to Stop & Shop this past weekend.

Mount Vernon RBI is a youth league designed to increase the knowledge and skill level of baseball and softball for boys and girls. The donation will be used by Mount Vernon RBI to give hot dogs and refreshments to teams during Saturday games. It will also be used to help provide food for an annual end-of-season cookout.

“Nathan’s Famous is proud to continue to give back to youth- and community-focused organizations, such as Mount Vernon RBI,” said Wayne Norbitz, Nathan’s Famous executive board member and former 26-year president. “We are committed to help keep our children active and give them a safe and fun place to enjoy the game of softball and baseball.”

RBI is a platform within MLB’s PLAY BALL initiative. Nathan’s Famous is a devoted sponsor of 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.
