You Can Still Vote … In the Nastiest Pitch Gif Tournament!


Sorry for the (un) clever ruse in the title, but you really can still vote in’s nastiest pitch of the second half tournament. Perhaps it’ll be a welcomed distraction.

The fine people over at Pitcher List have assembled and ranked sixteen of the nastiest pitches from the second half of the season, in hopes of finding the single nastiest pitch gif overall. Here are the rules, as they display on Pitcher List:

  • All GIFs were pulled from the twelve GIF of the Week competitions during the second half of the season and the postseason.


  • Every winner was granted an automatic bid.
  • The remaining pitches were editorial choices that we felt deserved a spot in the tournament.
  • Votes will last until 8:00am EST the following morning, with the next round starting at 10:00am every morning and final round beginning on Friday morning. The winner will be revealed Monday morning next week.

And here’s what the bracket looks like:


Upon clicking the link here, you’ll be able to watch two gifs – one of each pitch in all eight match-ups – and vote directly below it, before seeing the results. The winners will square off tomorrow, and a champion will be determined on Friday. Go Vote! You can still change something!

Also, damn, some of these pitches are naaaaaassstaaay.
