Throwing Distance Translates to Velocity?

i was just curious to see if how far you can throw has sort of a bench mark of where your velocity would be at.

like if you can throw 80 yards your velocity will be around 70mph

any thoughts?

That would tough to test, and I’m not really sure. The #2 pitcher on my high school team would around 81-83 mph, and I would throw 85-87 mph, and he could throw a decent amount of distance farther me.

I think it more depends on how much long toss you do and how far you go. I really can’t be sure either way.
