Foul Ball

The Morning GIF: Play ball

Shares

Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Wil Myers may just be a minor league prospect, but he’s already made his mark in baseball history.

Knocking a ball long into left field is hard, but this is more fun. The odds of Myers’ Sunday camera-smashing pop foul are incalculable; he managed possibly the most perfect foul ball in network coverage history.

"I'll be looking for a fastball to hit out of the yard," he told USA Today Sunday. He succeeded, as you can see. This GIF has 2,261 notes, presumably from non-camera-operators and Kansas City Royals fans.
