According to Guinness World Records the fastest pitched Baseball was thrown by Nolan Ryan on Aug. 20 1974. 100.9 mph There are many different records that have not been adequately confirmed. Joel Zumaya was clocked at 104 mph during the 2006 playoffs. Pitch speeds, however, are often exaggerated or inflated for the benefit of the fans. The Indians' Bob Feller reportedly threw well over 100 mph, and harder than Ryan, but there are no confirmed records of this. Feller was officially clocked at 98 mph late in his career.
