As a professional sport, baseball is unique because the players control the game clock, which makes the final out of every game feel cathartic. There’s no clock ticking down the seconds, and one act by a player can end the game.
One YouTube user has taken the dramatics of the final pitch of every World Series of the last 25 years and compiled a montage perfect for baseball fans waiting patiently for spring training. The creator notes that the last pitches of the 1995 and 2005 World Series weren’t included because of complications getting the video, but the compilation is still a must-watch.
