As I mentioned in class, I’m a bit baseball obsessed. Considering the assignment was to create a .gif that represented you, I figured why not stick with what I’m passionate about.
Aside from working for Major League Baseball I also write/podcast for PitcherList, a site dedicated to everything about pitching. So my animated .gif is focused on just that: pitching. Specifically two grips commonly used in the sport: the four seam grip (featured first) and the cutter grip. Below that animated .gif are the two pitches being used.
Here is Marco Estrada’s Four Seam Fastball (first grip)
And here is Jon Lester’s cutter (second grip)
