In the First Half GIF Tournament, Chris Sale went to the finals with a very similar “back-foot” Slider and he could be making the trip again after hitting Chris Denorfia on strike three. However, he has a big obstacle in his way in Steven Wright, who threw one of the very best Knuckleballs of the entire 2015 season in a trip to the Bronx. You’re cool Didi Gregorious, but there was no way you could have touched that pitch.
