Noah Syndergaard’s Fastball vs. Nick Pivetta’s Fastball

Noah Syndergaard's Fastball vs. Nick Pivetta's Fastball. Vote the winner of Nastiest Pitching GIFs of the Second Quarter 2018!

Two more heaters enter the fray as it could come down to the perception of camera angles. Noah Syndergaard’s heater looks incredibly deceptive at a blistering 98mph, though the off-center camera may trick the eye more than we think. On the other hand, Nick Pivetta’s 96mph fastball is exactly how we see it, with a pitch starting over the plate before whipping into the opposite batter’s box. Both are downright filthy, but only one will have a chance to be the nastiest.
