Talented Posters,

I have a humble request. In my efforts to explain pitch framing, I would like to have a .GIF of one particular pitch of the May 15, 2013 game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers.

The pitch in question is Mark Melancon's 2-1 pitch to Ryan Braun in the eighth inning of the game. It was an absolute thing of beauty. Melancon threw a 92-mph cutter that tailed about 4-5 inches off the outside corner of the plate. Russell Martin subtly, quietly received the ball and brought it back to the corner, getting a strike call and visibly upsetting Braun. The Milwaukee Roid Machine proceeded to strike out on the next pitch.

Does anyone have the ability to make a .GIF of that particular pitch?

The Eternally Grateful,

J_C_Steel

I can get the game, but I have no idea how to make a gif out of it.

I'll see what I can figure out if I have time tonight.

This fangraphs article on the worst-called strikes of 2012 has some good examples:
