Round 1: Jake Arrieta’s Curveball vs. Clayton Kershaw’s Curveball

By | |


These next Curveballs come from a pair of studs in Jake Arrieta and Clayton Kershaw. Arrieta was the only pitcher to have three GIFs of the same pitch to choose between, and we elected to go with this big hook to Anthony Gose as it falls low and inside. He has a tough opponent in Kershaw whose bender is well known for making daily GIF roundups. It comes down to which you prefer: slower but a bigger drop, or faster with a tighter break?
