Want to be a Fresno Grizzly?
The Topps Company and Minor League Baseball are giving one person a chance to do just that – to join the Fresno Grizzlies for a day through its Make Your Pro Debut contest.
The winner will suit up Taco Tuesday next April with the “Fresno Tacos” – the team's alter ego.
“It's one of the greatest memories of my life," said Nick Yohanek, the 2016 Make Your Pro Debut contest winner, who is featured on a Topps trading card. “It's one those cool things that I'll certainly never forget. You get to do something that money can't buy.”
Along with an honorary contract for a day, the winner will get their own Topps trading card in 2018 Topps® Pro Debut® Baseball.
Fans can enter the Make Your Pro Debut contest by finding a scratch off code card in hobby boxes of 2017 Topps Heritage® Minor League Baseball, which is in stores Sept. 27.
If they enter a winning code, they will be asked to answer five questions.
Topps employees judge those answers, and one will be selected to make their Pro Debut.
The winner receives an honorary one-day contract with the Fresno Grizzlies, a locker in the clubhouse, a Fresno uniform, a glove from Wilson, bats from Louisville Slugger, cleats from Under Armour and batting gloves from Franklin.
The winner will also get to take part in batting practice, infield/outfield drills and pre-game stretching and warm-ups. They will also get to stay in the dugout during the game.
