I wanted to get some opinions about who threw the fastest of all time. I would put up Chapman and Ryan. A friend of mine claims it is Bob Feller. So I found this youtube of Feller. It is fascinating and hysterical at the same time. This was before radar guns, so they calculated his velocity by comparing his pitch to a motorcycle traveling 86 mph. In the video, Feller releases his pitch 10 feet behind the motorcycle and is able to beat the motorcycle to the 60’6″  target by 3 feet. This calculates out to over 100 mph!!! Here is the hysterical part:

 

1- He is on flat ground not a mound.

2- He is wearing dress shoes.

3- He is wearing dress slacks and a dress shirt.

4- He still has his tie on!!!
