We’ve seen incredible pitches over the first of the season, and you’ve been voting all year for your favorite pitches. In honor of the All-Star Game, this week we will be hosting a tournament to crown the Best Pitching GIF of the First Half. Sixteen pitches will enter, who will win?
Before we get started, here are some basic rules:
– All GIFs were pulled from the fourteen GIF of the Week competitions we’ve had so far this season
– Every winner was granted an automatic bid, with the final slots being hand selected among the 2nd place finishers.
– Only one pitched was allowed per pitcher. There were only two repeat winners (Corey Kluber and Jake Arrieta), and we selected the best pitch based on winning % and pitch quality.
– Votes will last until 8:00am EST the following morning, with the next round starting at 11:00am every morning. The winner being revealed on Saturday morning.
