    Default Aroldis Chapman hit 104 (twice) today.

    Was just watching the Yankees vs Atlanta game and Chapman just hit 104 mph (twice) in the same inning. The record is 105.1 mph? I don't follow too much baseball but has a pitcher hit 104 mph that often? Would be amazing if he broke his own record tonight

    I was in a batting cage in Abbotsford 10 years ago facing 60 mph pitches. I was 20 years old and thought I was just going to crank everything that I seen. Problem was I couldn't see them .... LOL. I remember I was waiting for the pitch then all I hear is BOOM from the pitch hitting the back of the cage. I'm like excuse me can I leave now? My ego was a little bruised that day. I couldn't imagine looking at a 100 mph fastball barreling towards me.

    101 is the average "really fast fastball". Anything over that is insane. There's really only like 3 guys in the MLB that can throw over 100mph in a game. Someone like Syndergaard could, but he dials it back to keep up his endurance/accuracy. Aroldis goes like at 95% effort for every pitch it seems.
