Aroldis Chapman hits 104 mph on the gun while striking out the side
Aroldis Chapman throws baseballs professionally for the Reds. On Monday, he took the mound in a 1-1 tie while the Reds hosted the Diamondbacks in a dramatic game that eventually went 15 innings. Though the Reds dropped the game 2-1, Chapman did his part, striking out all three batters he faced.
Oh, and he hit 104 mph on the gun while doing so. That's not a typo, Aroldis Chapman actually threw a baseball 104 mph.
Yeah, we're guessing that Paul Goldschmidt isn't going to be kicking himself for being a little behind on those fastballs.
