Major League Baseball does not recognize radar speeds as an official statistic. It is widely accepted that the ability to clock a fastball with a radar gun is an unexact science. With that said Dwight Gooden was famous for his 98 mph fastball. It is possible that he did throw on occasion a ball slightly faster than this.

There is no "official" record for the fastest softball pitch. Here are some of the reputed records after a search of various archives: The Guinness Book of Records is supposed to have clocked a softball pitch at 68.9 miles per hour. National Pro Fastpitch (NPF), a women's professional softball league, claims that pitches of "70+" MPH are common. There are many other references in various sources making the same 70+ miles per hour claim. The fastest softball pitch reportedly clocked at the Atlanta Olympics was 73.2 MPH. Eddie Feigner, a famous softball player and the founder of the "King and His Court" 4-man softball team is supposed to have been clocked at 104 miles per hour. In a game against Major Leaguers ballplayers, Eddie Feigner struck out, Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, Brooks Robinson Willie McCovey, Maurey Wills, and Harmon Killebrew all in a row. Source:
