The shortest nine-inning game in MLB history was played by the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Giants on September 28, 1919. In the first game of a season-ending doubleheader, the Giants by 6 to 1 in just 51 minutes.
Nolan Ryan 101.3 clocked in a game. This isn't even close. The fastest pitch, recognized by the MLB was by Aroldis Chapman, the Cuban phenom rookie. He was a left handed reliever for the Cncinnati Reds. It happened on September 25, 2010 at Petco Park in San Diego. He was clocked at 105.1 MPH. It was called a ball, and it was off the inside corner to left hander Tony Gwynn Jr.
Yes, and his pitch beat Detroit Tigers Pitcher Joel Zumya's by just .034 MPH who had been clocked at a hair over 105!
Aroldis Chapman reached 105 mph in 2010, while pitching for the Cincinnati Reds. That's fast.
It is said that the recently departed Bob Feller, during his major league career, consistently threw pitches between 96-99 MPH, game after game.
Joel Zumaya of the Detroit tigers threw consistently over 100 MPH in games in the 2006 season. He, Justin Verlander, and Fernando Rodney each threw 100+ MPH pitches in the 3 July 2006 game in Oakland (McAfee Coliseum) setting the record for multiple pitchers from the same team throwing at such speeds in the same game.
When the fat lady sang
probably a 103 mph pitched ball
The greatest reliably recorded speed at which a baseball has been pitched is 100.9 mph by Lynn Nolan Ryan (California Angels) at Anaheim Stadium in California on August 20, 1974.
The Rangers Josh Hamilton with a bat speed of 110-115 mph.
The fastest officially clocked pitch was by Brian Jarrell at 72 MPH.
The fastest pitch ever recorded was 106.1 Mph. This was achieved by Closer/Reliever Aldoris Chapman, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. A baseball being hit could go 120+ off the bat.
The fastest pitch thrown at Fenway Park was 108 mph.
The fastest I've ever got is 178kph, but others may have got faster than that.
An off speed pitch is any type of pitch other than a fastball of any kind. In other words, an off speed pitch is any type of pitch that is not thrown with maximum speed. Examples are a curve, a slider, a sinker, a screwball, etc.
