GIF for the People: Hiroyuki Nakajima Bat Flip

If a butterfly flaps its wings in Japan, a hurricane can happen on the coasts of Florida. If new Oakland A’s shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima flips his bat in Japan, however, Jeff Sullivan will definitely capture video of it, render it into GIF form, and then optimize it for the people.

Science, is what that is.

Footage from series of Nakajima videos posted at Mercury News.
