109 MPH and according to those who actually saw him, the figure's legit.
Problem was the 109 was also the minimum proof of any liquid that passed his lips, and he drank his career (and his life) away.
According to a reporter Ted Williams was standing in the batter´s box and had heard of Dalkowski 109 fastball but didnt believe it, so he yelled at him "Pitch to me, and if you hit 109 ill have my son chop the head off my frozen dead body!!!"
Guess Dalkoswki was pretty fast
(PS- I made that up
