The Nastiest Pitching GIFs of the Third Quarter 2018

Jakob Junis’ slider is such a nasty pitch, we were forced to hold a Twitter vote to determine which slide piece would be featured in this competition. The community settled on an offering that earned a strikeout via a HBP and there’s a chance it could go far. However, Steve Cishek may have something to say about it, generating plenty of sweeping action on his bender to earn a huge swinging strike. There’s no wrong answer here, but only one slider will see another bout.
