110 mph? No, probably not. Most of the top men's pitchers throw in the 80's. There have been some studies done, though, showing that a 85 mph fastpitch is like a 100 mph Baseball pitch in terms of reaction time the hitter has. Remember in baseball, the pitcher is 60' 6" from home plate. In fastpitch, the pitching rubber is only 46 feet away, and many of the good pitchers leap towards home, so they are even closer by the time they release the ball. If 85mph doesn't sound fast to you, also consider they are throwing a 12" ball instead a 9" baseball. Some fastpitch hitters will tell you that it's harder to hit an 85mph fastpitch than a 100 baseball, because you have so little time to react. see for information on their annual "World Tournament". It is the "World Series" of men's fastpitch.
