If it seems like every day there’s a pitcher in Major League Baseball throwing ridiculously filthy stuff, it’s because, well, that’s exactly what’s happening every day in professional baseball right now.
The latest nasty pitch that had everyone in awe was thrown Thursday night by Philadelphia’s Aaron Nola. The right-hander unleashed a knuckle curve that Atlanta’s Eddie Rosario had no chance of hitting.
What made this pitch even better was that rapper Big Boi was in the Braves’ TV booth, and he had an absolutely priceless reaction to it. He summed it up the way every fan watching probably summed it up.
This is great:
