The Nastiest 16 Pitching GIFs of April 2019 — Semi-Finals
Jordan Hicks’ Slider vs. Jose Alvarado’s Sinker
They may have come from different parts of the world, but it wouldn’t be immensely surprising if Jordan Hicks (Houston native) and Jose Alvarado (Venezuelan) crossed paths with the same personal pitching coach at some point. Pretty much everyone else in the game throws the ball in the plate’s general vicinity, whereas these two are throwing it at opposing hitters’ back foot. Though, the results are there, so how much can you really argue with the results?
