“Listen to this sound!!!”
TBS shitty audio: *blep*
Definitely not the ESPN tactical nuke
The good ol [ohtani howitzer](https://streamable.com/tm44u5)
Haha I will never not love that clip. Absurd on so many levels.
It’s got phenomenal commentary to go along with it which is crazy considering it’s ESPN
Right!? I love the initial chuckle of the commentator. So authentic, you can tell he just loves the game. And is amazed at the absolute piss missile that ohtani launched
Favorite homer all time
I don't know how I'm just seeing it now for the first time but I have to make that my new text message sound.
Lol, join the club fam. We had this convo in Angels subreddit and we got instructions up there on how to do it. I can’t remember the name of the post but it is there. Just search for Ohtani and rummage through most recent posts
I bet it feels so satisfying to make perfect contact like that.
This gets me every time
That’s fucking hilarious
The sweet spot sound of a tiny shart
I laughed out loud at that. It could’ve very well just been a bunt with that noise. Nice work TBS.
Better than Joe Buck sounds effects.
It really does sound like wiffle (whiffle?) ball doesn't it?
This did not age well.
Chris Taylor took it personally
I can’t tell if people are arriving late or leaving early
I couldn’t believe how empty it looks
I left for yesterdays game at 3:50. Arrived at the stadium around 5. Parked at 5:25. Arrived at my seat in the bottom of the 3rd inning.
And I didnt have work that day
I can't blame people for not showing up. I certainly wouldn't want to spend several hours surrounded by increasingly angry Dodgers fans.
I think if you tried getting into dodger stadium right at game time you’d have a better understanding of why it’s a late arriving crowd
Yup, I like getting to the stadium 2 hours early and chilling. It’s so bad trying to get in before first pitch.
I went to game 3 and that 2pm start time killed me. I snuck out of work at 1:00, got to the Ravine around 1:50, and sat in a line to the gate for like 30 minutes. Went in through Academy Gate and got stuck in that canyon moving like 3 MPH.
its the first inning at dodger stadium what do you expect?
You're a Dodgers fan and don't know the stadium doesn't get full til around the 3rd inning? come on man
Simping for r/baseball. The most infuriating kind of dodgers fan.
Yeah he definitely isn't a dodgers fan. LA traffic and parking outside the field is miserable. Sold out games don't have everyone there until like the 4th inning
I went to the wildcard game and missed an exit 20 minutes before game time and that added a 10-15 minute delay to get to the parking entrance. LA traffic is hell.
Possible he's a fan that doesn't live in the area?
It's always the case for week night games that start at 5pm. Playoffs this year and every other year they've been in the playoffs...besides last year
Just a fan making a joke. I understand the hour it takes just to go into the parking lot could be worse than the traffic it takes to get near the stadium
Definitely is as you get closer to game time. And the parking lot is so fucking chaotic.
That's because McCourt still co-owns the parking lots. Forever unclean!
And then they take their Instagram pics and leave before the 7th
Yeah wtf? If that was a tigers' game it would be packed. Fatigue from the success that they don't care to support their team in the down times?
It's also just after 5 on the west coast, I'm sure a lot of people are getting over after work
That, and Dodger stadium traffic is notoriously terrible
Like….. egregiously bad
Like absolutely miserably bad
I take the train to Union Station and then the Dodger Express up to Elysian Park….. I’m still always late even leaving 2 hours before
That's fair. Hopefully they show up soon
Yesterday the stands looked relatively empty at first but eventually filled up. The fans will come
If it keeps going like this they might do a grandpa Simpson gif
Hopefully they show up and the Braves keep it up and TCOB and we get to see the max number of sad Dodger fans.
imagine rooting against the team with scherzer/turner while sporting a nats flair
Living in AZ this is the answer
Lmao still only 530 in LA. Takes 2 hours to go 10 miles
Yeah I forgot the time issue. Probably should have made it a slightly later game but I know why they didn't, and I'm ok with it since I'm an old man who doesn't want to stay up late.
Yeah, starting the game at 10 et would kill half the viewership
LA always seems to show up late and leave early. I’m sure being down 3-1 keeps the casuals away today. Even if we were up 3-1 the stands wouldn’t be filled to start the game
Probably arriving late. It’s just after work there
Tickets on StubHub were being marked down from $150-$50. I think no one's arriving.
#SLAP HITTER SLAPPIE SLAPMAN
How can he slap?
He slaps that ass
god i wish freddie freeman would slap my ass
That noise off the bat 🥵
Sounded like a bean bag hitting a cornhole board
This guy is so awesome
Just a slap hitter though btw
tbf he did slap it, just very hard
He slapped the sh*t out of that ball.
HOW CAN HE SLAP
I played in little league all stars with him at North Sunrise in Orange, California (and some high school ball, too). Everyone who saw him play expected him to go pro. It’s not that his stats were astronomically better than the other all stars but everything he did was so much bigger / more on point (perfect swing, always hit the ball with the meat of the bat, so casually powerful and fast with his swing—slap style is an odd way to put it, though) when he did it. I had a friend, Benji, that got Freeman to sign a ball when they were just 11 to 12 years old; maybe it was a bit of a homerun derby joke in little league, I believe (not positive), but it was also just because Benji was so positive that he’d go pro. He underachieved as a fielder and hitter in high school but was a pretty unhittable pitcher (when not injured) for most of his youth. He choose to give up pitching and I wasn’t really sure what to expect of him as a professional baseball player even though I knew he’d make it pro. I didn’t expect him to be an all star playing for consecutive national league pennants and one of the best players on his team, to boot. Makes me wonder about the talent on his teams that he seemed to put to shame growing up despite him still creating much that same comparable shame when propped up to half of the MLB. But yea, slap hitter covers it, though.
Frederick “Sloppy Slapper” Freeman
I already miss Rizzo gifs. Gonna be a long offseason
Starting to think that 2 run 1st inning homers are a sign you're going to lose the game.
So it begins..
SLAP ON :clap clap:
SLAP OFF :clap clap:
BECAUSE I'M SLAPPY
SLAP ALONG IF YOU FEEL LIKE A PARK WITHOUT A ROOF
I am a fan of Freddie Freeman.
I love this man
###HE’S GOOD AT TALKING TO THE GUY ON FIRST
“The Dodgers have the book on Freddie Freeman” — Fangraphs after Game 2
I mean, they did. He adjusted.
They don't accidentally strike him out 7 times in a row
It’s incredibly naive to pull a sample size of *checks notes* 2 games to say that a team has a hitter figured out.
The Dodgers read the sparknotes and called it a day
Are we *sure* the braves didn’t steal whatever ancient artifact bestowed devil magic upon the Cardinals?
Wait is the dildo sword source of the devil magic?
MVP SLAP HITTER!!!!!!
S L A P H I T T E R
Sign the lifetime extension
Dude is 6’5, 6’ of which is legs
Joe Kelly has been suspended 8 games.
This didn't age well
This could be a long night for LA
If it's going to happen just score 10 and put me out of my misery plz ATL
ATL knows a thing or two about allowing 10 quick runs in an elimination game
Well— we’ve scored 11 so far…
Fun to play with these doomers in here
Trust me, you'll be hearing about it forever.
They’re saying you don’t want to give up 10+ in the first inning because you’ll hear about it forever and relive the pain. You want to lose in forgettable fashion.
Oh my bad got it
I just want to let you know I downvoted your before the giants fan. DOOMER!
Lol dude I can't control the outcome of the game or what kind of mindset the players have by thinking positively, I really hope you understand that. You can be a diehard fan and still be upset by the way your team has played.
Or a short one.
I’ve lit candles and poured some red wine. Al Green is playing softly in the foreground. I hope it’s long. I love the… anticipation.
Freddie Freeman is my dad.
Just hook it to my veins
Middle of the ~~day~~ afternoon, half empty stadium, relief pitcher as opener, crowd silent as a home run is driven in top 1… is this really game 5 of a championship series?
5pm isn't the middle of the day.
Also they used to have World Series games in the afternoon earlier than that.
Just from appearances anyway, looks like any old regular season game
That's cuz getting to Dodgers Stadium is an all day event in and of itself
Not to mention most people are getting off work AT 5.
ALL GAS NO BRAKES BABY
You hate to see it
but more than that you love to see it.
Yeah Houston fans should be psyched. They’re gonna sweep Atlanta
Dodgers fans thought the same thing
Smug know-it-all sports writers thought that, most Dodger fans did not.
No chance. This Braves team is great.
~~Hoes~~ Joes Mad
Freddie Freeman, now there's a haircut you could set your watch to!
Live by the Joe, die by the Joe
Joe Kelly’s mustache is in constant flux, and it’s headed towards James Bond villain status
Ron Darling knew that was gone LOL
How it started:
And that was the highlight of their night
Only thing quicker than that swing is OP’s posting skills.
This guy deserves a World Series ring.
Team of destiny
Gosh I love Freddie
Brian Anderson is the best baseball play-by-play guy in the game right now and you can’t convince me otherwise. Love watching games he’s calling.
Daddy bout to get paiiiiiiid
As much as I don't want to say this, I am actually rooting for the Braves. Y'all have been on fire in the postseason, and I gotta give y'all credit for it. That, and it's been 25 seasons, not including this one, that y'all have won the world series. It's time.
Joe Kelly and ending Dodgers postseasons name a more potent combo
I’ll agree with you after the series. But not now
Trash cans and buzzers.
Oof tough numbas
I hope the Braves win.
I know it’s been tough, but damn…
For the Dodgers to go out with a whimper?
Injury central over here.. tough to watch for shre
Yeah they’re just destined to beat our ass. I don’t understand
Revenge for last year I guess. But hey we got a WS championship fuck the haters
Flags fly forever
also is my phone weird or is that just showing a dot and not an asterisk
Yeah last year didn’t matter… hardest post season ever. Rich from a braves fan.
Everyone had an equal opportunity, so why didn’t your team do it?
Nice pitch, Bitch
I liked Joe Kelly before, ever since he mocked the Astros, but I like him even more now
I want die
I respect Freddie Freeman.
Braves better give that man his money before the Dodgers do.
Braves going for the kill early. Which is exactly what they need to do.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer pitcher — Not!
Just fade me
Freddie can never disappoint me
HE SURE CAN JOKE AROUND WITH THE RUNNER AT FIRST THO
Crazy bat speed. One of the sweetest swings in baseball today.
Lmao even when it's a bullpen game the Braves still pound our starter ffs
It reminds me of that Abe Simpson in and out gif.
2nd most beautiful sound after hearing my future baby cry.
Damn Brian Anderson is such a homer
Jared Carrabis might be the worst baseball commentator ever. He goes the Braves don't have any major injuries lol
He caught that? That doesn't make sense
Like it was way too fast to have bounced off the net
as a biased af brewers fan, why are the Braves complaining about BA? This is some top notch casting in my very biased opinion
