The question should be changed from; can an 11 year old throw that hard but if he should throw that hard? Throwing a fastball 90 MPH puts an enormous amount of stress on the arm. An eleven year old is still growing and this will have an effect on bone growth, and damage ligaments and tendons . If I was a coach of a talented 11 year old that could throw the ball this hard I would hold him back on velocity, and concentrate on control, and learning how to pitch.

I agree and some of the best pitchers in the history of the game like greg maddux and tom glavine can barely reach 90. How should a pre-pubescent 11-year old be able to do that.

Real Answer

How fast did Bob Feller throw?

The best information I have came from a short film biography that stated in 1941 his fast ball speed was estimated by comparison with a speeding motorcycle going 86 mph. It was estimated he reached 104 mph. However, in 1946 radar guns were available. His fast ball was measured at 107.9 mph. Pretty fast. Claim is that his fast balls frequently measured over 100 mph during regular games. In a film biography of Bob Feller it is said in 1941 his fast ball was estimated at 104 mph.
