So you may have noticed a few weeks back that Franklin Sports hosted a giveaway, and the winner got to build his very own custom batting gloves. Well, that lucky winner, as you might expect, just so happen to be a WPW guy, and a helluva ballplayer to boot. Matt Shortall, an All-American outfielder for the UT Arlington Mavericks who’s in the top ten in hits and top 20 in RBI in the country, hit us up requesting some assistance in picking the first ever custom Franklin batting gloves for an amateur player.
So we had Franklin mock up Matt’s three favorite colorways, and here we will present them to the WPW voting body (you) to decide which CFX Pro beauties Matt will be spraying with for the near future.
A quick side note, Franklin hasn’t officially revealed any details on a custom offering, but the whispers and hashtags are growing louder by the day—its just a matter of when. Until then, shop Franklin’s many colors and styles here.
Now for the finalists:

For your reference, here’s another shot of Matt’s Mavericks uni to match up with:
