Good article. Although I am thinking about calling shenanigans on Coffey hitting 98. I have nothing to back that up though.

Hanson would have hit 98 for the Red Sox today if they'd left him in long enough.


Wait a minute...that's not what you mean....;)

Coffey had been known to run it up to 97 in the minors.

Maybe it wasn't an exaggeration.:confused:

Joel Zumaya...104! OUCH! Too bad Junior took him to the house with 3 ducks on the pond!

That was awesome! It was definatley a heater too. I didn't know Junior still had that in him.

Then David Weathers and Felipe Lopez blew it in the 9th.

Ive seen games in which Coffey was clocked at 96-97 mph, but he seems to usually be around 93-95 mph.

I was at that game, Jr's slam landed about 15 feet from me. What a shot..

Oh, and on the throw by Lopez - i blame it more on Richie and his lack of ability at 1b...but who cares now.

According to that article, Gary Majewski once hit 99 MPH for the Washington Nationals.

Imagine how much money the Newtown Police would be able to make if they had that particular radar gun in one of their patrol cars.

Wait a minute. Isn't the official fastest pitch record still held by Nolan Ryan at 102?

No doubt guys like Zumaya can dial it up, but I'm skeptical of 104.

I'm thinking they must have been measuring in kilometers per hour. :D

They both had some blame in that, but if Lopez doesn't one hop the throw RA never has to pick it. I'm no RA fan, either.

I was in Lakeland watching the Reds last week, and lets just say that Zumaya throws a legit 102-103 mph. He left me in absolute awe. Although as much as i enjoyed seeing him pitch, I enjoyed BP smoking one of those fastballs right up the middle for a base hit even more :)

I've watched some games where Zumaya has hit triple digits more than a few times in a game, but normally sits at about 98-99

Verlander gets it up there too doesn't he?
