The Nastiest 16 Pitching GIFs of April 2019

Max Fried’s Curveball vs. Charlie Morton’s Curveball


Raimel Tapia hasn’t gone on record saying this is the grossest swing he’s ever taken in his life, but there’s a good chance it is. At least it came on a filthy curveball from Max Fried that breaks at the last possible second after appearing to be a batting practice fastball heading down Broadway. Fried’s curve goes against another one flipped in by Charlie Morton against Yoan Moncada, who whiffed right over the top of the back-foot hook.

Nick pitched at Northwestern University from 2011-14. He firmly believes the answer to every count and situation is a changeup — probably because he only topped out at 91. Nick runs the GIF Tournaments at Pitcher List. If you see a pitch that deserves recognition, let him know on Twitter @Nick_Friar. Maybe give him a follow, too? Or not. Actually, "not" might be the right answer here.
