Pitcher GIF Database Scavenger Hunt – Win PL Merch!

Find all 27 items in our GIF Database to win PL merch!

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.

For the unaware, the every pitcher who pitched in 2019 has a player page featuring GIFs showcasing each pitch in their repertoire. For example, here is Clayton Kershaw’s page.

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
