Legit or not, 103mph is REALLY fast

This video will have probably been removed by MLB by the time you read this, but hopefully you can see the video.

Aroldis Chapman, aka the “Cuban Missle,” who was clocked at 105mph in his last start in the minors was clocked at 102, 100, 102, 103 in his MLB debut.

We all know that modern guns are baloney but even with a +/- 5-7%, this is incredible. And he’s Left-Handed, wow.
Cuban Missle” <—excellent nickname. Hope they don’t ruin the kid with Pitch Counts.


ps – Kudos to Craig Counsell for grounding out on the 103mph heater. THAT is a big-league hitter.
