The Nastiest 16 Pitches GIFs of the First Half of 2019

Jordan Hicks’ Fastball vs. Jose Alvarado’s Two-Seamer


Jose Alvarado brought his pitch in at a wickedly fast 98 mph, but uhh…I guess no one told him he would have to compete with a stupid 103 mph dart from Jordan Hicks. This matchup is a 2 vs. 7, but both of these pitches have their own merits that make them uniquely nasty. With Alvarado, it’s his ability to bend a ball that nears triple digits. Hicks, on the other hand, is three ticks over 100 and straight up scares Joey Gallo with this monster of a fastball.
