Hey guys, what do you think the perfect size for a power pitcher is? I completely understand that is not the only factor in how hard a pitcher throws, Lincecum and R. Johnson both throw/threw 98+ with proper mechanics, but size does have some effect. So I’m just saying, if you were to create the perfect power pitcher who throws triple digit heat, how tall would he be? I would say the sweet spot would be between 6’2"-6’5", but thats just where I happen to notice the majority of the guys who throw really hard happen to fall. My ideal body would be Josh Becketts, 6’5" 220.
On a more personal note, my growth plate chart puts me at about 6’2" or 6’3", which is still plenty tall enough for me.
