The Nastiest 16 Pitching GIFs from Spring Training – Semi-Finals
Spring training has come and gone, with the real games already underway. There has already been a load of impressive pitches to start the regular season, but spring training had quite a few worth noting.
Before we start any tournaments involving the 2019 regular season, let’s decide which was the best pitching GIF from spring training. Four pitches remain, though only three pitchers are left. (If that’s too confusing, just scroll down and vote, you’ll get it.)
While none of these games mattered, winning this tournament is another story entirely.
Here are the rules:

- You can only vote on a matchup once, so make sure you pick the one you absolutely want.
