Yerrrr Out-Out-Out-Out!: An Animated Gallery Of Every MLB Umpire's Strike-Three Call (Part 1)S

At last, after 72 entries, we've completed our Better Know An Umpire series. We hope you've enjoyed learning more about the human elements in blue, the men who wander anonymously through the sport, even as they make the game all about them. Next time some stooge in a chest protector screws your team out of a victory, you know where to look.

Based on your responses, the most popular feature of these BKAU blurbs wasn't the betting info or the scouting reports. No, it was the called-strike-three GIF at the bottom of every post. We've collated all 72 of those GIFS for your enjoyment. Here's the first half. Click here for the second half.

Note: You may want to wait a minute before scrolling all the way down. There are 36 GIFs on this page, and it'll take a moment for them all to load. Trust us, though. It'll be worth it.
