The Nastiest 32 Pitching GIFs of 2018 – Round 3

This Jose Berrios curveball is your weekly reminder to never let your child become a catcher. Why in the world would you want to have to handle a pitch like this? Yeah, you can make a ton of money if you’re good at it, but you’re almost certainly going to break your fingers or something. Whereas Chaz Roe‘s slider is a reminder of why the Red Sox didn’t bring back “Win, Dance, Repeat,” in 2018. Other guys, like Xander Bogaerts, wanted to get involved and simply didn’t have the same ability.

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.
