Red's Aroldis Chapman throws fastest pitch ever recorded

A 105 mph fastball the other night against the Padres. He threw 25 pitches in relief, none below 102. Throwing a 105 mph fastball is just insane. I wonder how long he can do that, even in relief, with that much stress on his arm.

That's just incredible. 102mph is just insane and he does like there's no tomorrow. Just wow!!

If I'm actually in the park, seeing a pitch at 95 mph is just an insane thing...so awesome.

105? It's just nuts...awesome to hear about this.

Good point, CO, about stressing his arm. I'd love to read about how he deals with that at this early point in his career.
