With the Blue Jays home opener in our rear view mirror, and the season in full swing our baseball fix is finally being filled.
The Canadian Baseball Network partnered with Rawlings to stage a contest encouraging baseball fans to share their photos and tag them with #OurHomePlate. We saw so many amazing entries from every aspect of the game- the fans, the players, the training camps, the fields and the future stars.
Our winner … Erik Sabrowski of the Prospects Baseball Academy in St. Albert, Alta.
And we have a feeling he may have won bragging rights as well as a sweet new custom glove.
