Quiz Description

Baseball has long been filled with weird moments, and while GIF technology has been around since the 1990s, it wasn't until recently that its application has captured those moments on an infinite, soundless loop, adding terrific lore to those unsung moments. Enjoy the GIFs, but more importantly try to identify some of their context.
