100 MPH thread and Wakefield is one of the only guys to be mentioned twice......... :-B

I can barely hit 75 MPH so to get 100 is just amazing to me. It can't really be taught, and anybody with that kind of speed is like a 7 footer in basketball: they need ot be shown how to use skill on top of natural talent/God given ability.

well... how quickly does a knuckleball dart transversely when it is thrown?

Fastest fastball of 'em all was the infamous Steve Dalkowski.

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.

I saw a long ESPN story on sportcenter about a minor leaguer that the Angels signed that could hit 112 mph (I am NOT joking here), they signed him at the age of 18 to a minor league deal but he kept getting drunk and fooling around with the coaches daughter or something and was thrown off the team, don't knopw what happened to him afterwards. I remmember the story came on about 5 months ago.


I remember two storie´s actually. One about a minor leaguer in the 50´s who could reach 112mph. All he threw was fastaballs and he had one good minor league season and then got hurt.
I read another story about the drunken prospect who cant stop getting into fights but he was clocked at 103

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 :-D )

Maybe it was 102 consistently. But I am was sure it was something like 112. However, you probobly are right.

I heard burnett used to throw 98-99, then he adopted the kevin brown leg kick and could throw over 100 consistently.
