Pitch In For Baseball & Softball is thankful for all essential workers and would like to extend our gratitude in honor of Pay It Forward Day on Tuesday, April 28th.

Beginning on Friday, April 24th, you can nominate any essential worker to win an exclusive A2000 or A2K glove generously donated by Wilson Sporting Goods, plus a $100 Visa Gift Card and some Pitch In For Baseball & Softball swag.

To nominate your favorite essential worker, visit the Pitch In For Baseball & Softball page on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram any time between 4/24 and 11:59 PM EST on 4/28. Find the contest post, and tag your nominee in the comments. Be sure to state the job of the person you are nominating. (Post should read, for example, – “@abcperson, nurse”).

One winner each will be selected from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The winners will receive the gift pictured for that particular platform (no exchanges).

The gift baskets will include a brand new A2000 or A2K Wilson baseball glove, a $100 Visa Gift Card, and PIFBS swag (t-shirt, quarter zip pullover, clear stadium bag, and water bottle.) The prizes available on each platform are pictured below.
