This week’s crop of baseball GIFs features a pair of mind-melting pitches, a man licking a baseball, and David Ortiz going Office Space on a dugout phone. We lead things off with Chad Qualls’ failed attempt at a fist pump.

All GIFs were created by myself and theScore dot com’s news hounds, unless otherwise noted. Big glove taps to the brothers Toman at Game Reax, and Josh Gold-Smith.
