The Nastiest 16 Pitching GIFs of April 2019
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.
