    Per wikipedia:

    Van Mil throws a fastball that averages 95 miles per hour (153 km/h),[18] which has been recorded as fast as 97 miles per hour (156 km/h). Van Mil also throws a slider and a change-up.
    Van Mil is 7 feet 1 inch (2.16 m) and weighs 260 pounds (120 kg). Van Mil is the tallest player in professional baseball. Jon Rauch, at 6 feet 11 inches (2.11 m), is the tallest player in Major League Baseball history. Due to his height, maintaining his pitching mechanics is difficult, as there are more variables in his windup that he needs to repeat each time he throws a pitch.
