40 best gifs of the 2014 mlb season

The 2014 MLB Postseason is upon us. However, before everyone gets carried away in all the October drama, what with all the clutch hits and the walk-off wins, let’s take a moment look back at the previous 2,430 games with this list of the best GIFs of the 2014 MLB season.

After all, while the regular season didn’t yield any epic pennant races or record-breaking statistical performances, it was still pretty great. We saw a little bit of everything—embarrassing first pitches, bizarre handshakes, hilarious fails, adorable kids, truly outstanding plays, pure rage, and even a touchdown pass.

So sit back and take a look at the list. Then do me a favor send it to all your baseball-loving friends so it goes viral and I get a big raise. Cool?

Okay, here we go, then. Our countdown of the best GIFs of the 2014 MLB season starts riiiight…
