The 16 Best Sliders of 2019 GIF Tournament — Semi-Finals
If there’s one pitch that looks great regardless of how bad the camera angle is, it’s a slider. It’s also become the go-to breaking ball across the league, especially for relievers.
Although the 2019 season is young there have already been a ton of wipeout sliders. In fact, we’re just sticking with sliders this round. No curves, gas, or pulling the string in this tournament. Sliders only. Sixteen entered the tourney, only four still have a shot at the first regular season crown.
Here are the rules:
- All GIFs were pulled from the first two and a half weeks of the season.
- You can only vote on a matchup once, so make sure you pick the one you absolutely want. No take-backsies (very strict policy).
- Voting will continue until 12:00 a.m. EST the following morning. This is the third round.
