Just thought I would throw this video up here, to show off a strikeout, power pitcher with an overwhelming fastball that isn’t upper 90’s gas. Jake Peavy lives in the 90-93 range, peaks at about 94, and still has an overwhelming fastball because of its late life and his ability to command it. Heres a video of him striking out 13 Rockies, 11 of which went down on
the fastball, and only two of which hit 94 mph, most at 92-93.
Now he doesn’t exactly throw soft either, but I find it refreshing to see hitters overwhelmed by a fastball that isn’t getting on them at 97+, coming out of a 5-11/6-0 body.
