An umpire gets drilled with a backswing, a 55-foot fastball, a behind the back catch, and ninjas… it’s the Getting Blanked GIFs of the week. We lead this instalment with a second-run of Curtis Granderson eating a Freezee because Curtis Granderson eating a Freezee is one of the greatest things we’ve ever witnessed. A couple of these GIFs are rather large, so apologies in advance for the destruction your browser will meet today.
Here’s the rest of the GIFs that have kept us entertained over the past seven days.
