VIDEO: 5 Hot, Smoldering Minutes of Defense

A double-dosage of thanks to Youtuber tensaibaka for compiling the best defensive moments (and one pitching moment) of the NPB’s month of June. Girdle your mind for adventure:

It starts with a Mario Super Sluggers eephus pitch. Anything that starts with an eephus pitch will only make happiness smoulder in your chest like a-bucket-hot-wings heartburn. And here are some of the more funnest ones, en-GIF’d:

Jumps!
The over-jump!

Catches!
The double-catch!

Murts!
The Murton-rob!

That’s funny because I was going to ask when Tampa had time to change over all the signs to Japanese in the Murton video
