“The SUBWAY® Baseball DeSIGNS Tour and our national sponsorship of Little League® Baseball continue to provide an opportunity for SUBWAY® to support Little League® with a program that is unique and brings added awareness and exposure while giving back,” said Tony Pace SUBWAY® Franchisee Advertising Fund Chief Marketing Officer. “The level of creativity these young athletes and artists show in designing these baseballs is inspiring. We’re looking forward to kicking off the tour in Los Angeles and highlighting their talent across the country.”
