One of my favorite things about Twitter is pitching gifs. Pitchers are better than ever and now with social media, we are able to see them do incredible things in really lovely ways. Jordan Hicks might be one of the most gif-able pitchers in baseball.
We have definitely looks at Hicks gifs before, but now he is setting new records:
If Jordan Hicks' (@Jhicks007 ) last pitch was in fact 104 MPH it's the fastest pitch in baseball this season by about 2 MPH, topping himself for the lead.— Corey Miller (@corey_miller5) April 21, 2019
Oh yeah, Hicks owns the seven other fastest pitches of the season as well.
What does that 104 mph pitch look like? Well, I am glad you asked!

And then you add a slider to it...
