when i was 14 on the big field i was hitting high 70s and then my freshman year i was able to hit low 80s then tore my rotator cuff so i just started playing baseball again this summer and have yet to pitch but i still got some velocity when im throwing around..
another kid in my grade was easily hitting 80s then and is high 80s low 90s right now.. there is also another kid whos a year younger who can throw just as hard...
so at 16 80 is not out of the question for some people, lot depends on how well their mechanics are and if they get good leg drive, cause i was a stick back then but had strong legs and good leg drive
