The Nastiest 16 Pitching GIFs of April 2019

Chaz Roe’s Slider vs. Clayton Kershaw’s Curveball


Most of the Chaz Roe sliders that are featured on Pitcher List include an opposing hitter looking like a fool, taking a big hack at a pitch that’s nowhere near where they’re swinging. Roe still made Teoscar Hernandez look silly, but he at least knew enough to lay off this pitch. The same can’t be said about Yasiel Puig when he went up against his old teammate Clayton Kershaw. The Cy Young award-winning pitcher got the better of his ex-teammate on this one — in a big way.

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.
