Some very good news on an already glorious day. In honor of the Best Day of the Year, Opening Day, Wilson green-lighted the mother of all giveaways, the chance to build your very own dream glove. And the only thing you have to do to enter is build it. I legitimately can’t think of a better way to ring in the new season than with a ballgame on the TV and building out a new girlfriend on WilsonCustomGloves.com. You’re welcome. Here’s how to enter:
- Go to WilsonCustomGloves.com.
- Design your dream glove. Pick the best pattern, position, leather, colors, laces, logos, names, numbers you can think of. Make it the prettiest thing you’ve ever laid eyes on. Take your time. Clear your schedule. Ask your teammates. Instagram it. Talk to your family about it at dinner time. Make a Powerpoint. Pray about it. This step is not to be taken lightly.
- Once its completed, click “REVIEW YOUR GLOVE” on the top right of the screen.
- Note: DO NOT CLICK THE SHARE BUTTONS IN THE TOP RIGHT OF THE SCREEN, CLICK “REVIEW YOUR GLOVE.” Otherwise you will not be entered.
- On the right side, click the Twitter button to share your glove. (If you didn’t click “REVIEW YOUR GLOVE” in the previous step, you did it wrong and won’t be entered because we can’t see your glove.)
- This begins the judgment phase. Before you tweet your design, be sure to tag @WhatProsWear and @wilsonballglove to be entered.
- WPW will pick our FOUR favorite designs.
- Those FOUR will be taken to a March Madness style vote, with the semi-finals on Friday, April 4th, starting when I post the matchups and ending at 5 pm Pacific time.
- On Saturday April 5th, the remaining two entries will battle it out in a vote to see who will have his or her dream glove made. That vote will begin when I post the matchup and end at 5 pm Pacific time.
- ONE WINNER WILL BE CHOSEN TO HAVE THEIR OWN CUSTOM GLOVE MADE.
Some tips to help your chances of winning:
- Make a great-looking glove. Its a beauty pageant.
- Get your friends involved (obviously) in the voting. Share it with them.
- Don’t cheat. Don’t pester me.
- Entries are limited to one per person/Twitter account.
- I’m a human with a brain, reviewing every entry, so if you just make up a ton of Twitter accounts I’m going to figure it out and you’ll just be disqualified with no reinstatement.
- One winner will be chosen on Saturday, April 5.
- No purchase necessary.
