1. Steady Hand
Let’s start with maybe the best baseball .gif of all time. This is a composite of Yu Darvish throwing 5 different pitches. The amazing thing is that his delivery is the same on all of them. Incredible.
2. In The Palm Of His Hand
That’s pitcher Aaron Laffey (then playing for the Seahawks) catching a comebacker at the mound. And then tossing down the ball like it wasn’t a thing.
3. Mitt For The Win
Sometimes you just gotta catch it anyway you can. Especially if you’re Chad Jenkins
4. If At First You Don’t Succeed, Try Try Again
Especially if you’re Tony Campana trying to slide into 3rd.
5. Off The Wall
There is no way that this is humanly possible. Ergo, Yasiel Puig is superhuman.
6. HE GONE!
Chris Davis’ nickname is “Crush”. Makes sense.
7. Rollins On Home
Jimmy Rollins dodges the tag at home for the score.
8. Stretch To The Max
Justin Maxwell lays out all he’s got in this diving catch.
9. Big Papi
David Ortiz doing what he’s paid to do. Hit bombs.
10. Someone Hire This Dude!
Extra points for keeping hold of the kid too.
11. Tumbling Is Cool
Josh Donaldson pulls off some Backyard Baseball fielding magic for the Oakland A’s.
Yasiel Puig pulls off some tandem fielding maneuvers. New Olympic sport anyone?
13. Diving Team
Looks like Ramon Santiago just earned himself a place on any diving team he wants to join.
14. Losing Your Hat
What your seeing is Rajai Davis flipping up his hat on the way to make the catch. If it landed on his head it would’ve been number one for sure. Anyway, it’s still cool.
15. Slow Motion For Me
Here’s Darvish again absolutely fooling a dude with a slow slow curveball.
16. I Did It On Pupose, I Swear
Jose Iglesias absolutely wanted to do that. He promises.
Mike Trout really wanted that slide. Like he wanted to slide like a 6-year-old wants to slide.
18. Thru The Legs
Between the legs is the way to go for Brandon Phillips
Ben Revere does his best Superman impression
20. Eyes On The Ball
Eric Young takes that old sports maxim to heart
21. Hops, Lots of Hops
Stephen Drew takes all the hops.
22. Behind the Back
Not that this play influences anything, but it’s still awesome. That’s Joe Mauer.
