GIF: Shaky-Cam footage of a Joey Gallo Home Run

While the advent of things like MiLB.tv have made it easier to view certain minor league baseball games, many times the fidelity of such footage falls somewhere between 1993 Magnavox TV/VHS combo and wax pencil on onion paper. The recent game between the Frisco RoughRiders and the Corpus Christi Hooks featured both HD footage and a performance by Rangers prospect Joey Gallo. While the resolution is improved, the cameraman’s anticipation-induced trembling gives the following footage a little bit of a Zapruder-film vibe. It can be described, nevertheless, as impressive.

    When I wait for the ball to appear behind the center-field wall, the bouncy castle suddenly moves. May I conclude that Joey Gallo hit a bouncy castle with his home run?
