The 2023 Major League Baseball season in under way, which means pitchers are back to throwing ridiculous pitches that professional hitters have no chance of hitting

One of those pitches was thrown Thursday night by the Mariners’ Matt Brash. Seattle’s right-handed reliever pitched just one inning against the Guardians but he made it count as his knuckle curveball that struck out José Ramírez was easily the nastiest pitch of Opening Day. 

This pitch not only struck Ramírez out but it sent the power-hitting third baseman to the ground, where he could only watch as Mariners catcher Cal Raleigh fired the ball around the infield.

That is NASTY.
