This Baseball GIF Will Make Your Mind Explode

Definitive proof that hitting off an MLB pitcher is very, very hard.

Yu Darvish is one of the top young pitchers in baseball. The Texas Rangers ace is off to a great start this season, compiling a 4-1 record and a minuscule 1.65 era.

The following GIF may explain why he’s off to such a good start.

OK: if your brain didn’t instantanly combust, lets break down what you’re looking at. Contrary to popular belief, this is not magic: this is Albert Pujols’ entire at-bat against Darvish in one convenient GIF.

What makes this GIF spectacular is how Darvish uses the EXACT same delivery and EXACT same arm slot for each pitch, yet not a single ball ends up within a foot or two of another.

Now look at it again.
