What would a GIF tournament be without a Chris Sale Slider? Nothing screams absolute filth like throwing a Slider from the opposite batter’s box only to hit the batter…as they swing through the pitch. Poor Mark Trumbo felt the pain both mentally and psychically. Meanwhile, Kelvin Herrera shows how nasty a right-handed Slider can be as this pitch to Manny Machado gets new life just before it crosses the plate. The sharpness of its break is something to behold.
