It’s time for the annual Pitcher GIF Database Scavenger Hunt!
Every year here at Pitcher List, we update our GIF Database with over 2,500 new pitching GIFs across all of our player pages on the site.
What better way to explore the hundreds of GIFs than with a fun hunt? The Pitcher List staff has identified 27 different items to find across our database, and it’s up to you to find them all.
This year, we’re going to spice things up a bit. We’re going to be giving away two items of merch of the winners’ choice from our store to those that can find all 27 items!
- One winner for the first person to submit a fully completed list of all items
- One winner randomly selected among all the other participants with a fully completed list of all items
To enter, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line:
