Part IV in our series of the best GIFs of 2012 has arrived. Like Part IVs from the Rocky and Friday the 13th series before it, our tribute to baseball audiences will be the one best remembered among fans. Myself, I’m more of a Clubber Lang enthusiast than a Drago guy. Whatever, just watch the GIFs.

The nut-shot GIF pictured above elicited more debate in the comment section this past season than it was worth. After multiple viewings and through studying the footage frame-by-frame, I can conclude with confidence that the ball’s path [intended] went bicep-nuts-face. End of debate.
