That started out as a Sports Illustrated April Fool's joke, by George Plimpton, about a young pitcher on the Mets who was clocked in spring training at 168 mph. A Tibetan Monk who could throw 168 mph. He developed it into a great book.
I totally forgot about Sidd Finch. What made that great was that they had the Mets in on it as well. I remember an interview with Davey Johnson where he was asked what would happen if one of Finch's fastballs were to hit someone.
Davey: "If someone got hit by his pitch I'm sure it would kill them."
