The Nastiest 16 Pitches GIFs of the First Half of 2019
Chaz Roe’s Slider vs. Jordan Hicks’ Slider
When we talk about Jordan Hicks, it’s usually because we’re talking about his unfathomably fast heater. Here, we’re taking the time to appreciate Hicks’ wicked slider, which brings Corey Dickerson down to a knee. But he’s got some tough competition, as he’ll be facing the king of nasty pitches himself, Chaz Roe. Roe’s slider has gained fame for its ability to break about a foot and a half and fool hitters. Here it is making Khris Davis look like a fool. Wow.
