The Nastiest 16 Pitches GIFs of July 2019

This July was a big one for pitchers. Marcus Stroman became a Met, Trevor Bauer perfected the art of long tossing before being traded and other pitchers are starting to come to full form. Most importantly, some absurd GIFs emerged in July. So ridiculous that the list of honorable mentions from this month probably would have made most other tournaments in the past. Now it’s time to crown the best pitching GIF of them all from July 2019.

The best 16 have been pulled aside and ranked. Now it’s on you, the voter, to decide which stands above the rest.

Here are the rules:

  • All GIFs were pulled from July 2019 (including the All-Star Game).
  • You can only vote on a matchup once, so make sure you pick the one you absolutely want.
  • Voting will continue until 12:00 a.m. EST the following morning. This is the first round.


Here are the matchups for Round 1:

2. Jose Berrios’ Curveball vs. 7. Mike Clevinger’s Curveball
