The Nastiest 16 Pitches GIFs of the First Half of 2019—Finals
Chaz Roe’s Slider vs. Luis Castillo’s Two-Seamer
And then there were two! We’ve got our final matchup today, and boy, is it a good one. Both of these pitches are uniquely nasty, but only one can come out on top. Let’s start with the semifinal winner from our American Bracket: Chaz Roe’s slider. This pitch is absolutely fantastic. It starts out like any other before it zips a foot off the plate to fool Khris Davis. Now, onto Luis Castillo and his filthy two-seamer. Watch as the pitch travels straight toward Eric Hosmer, before somehow coming back into the zone to freeze the Padres first baseman.
