Aroldis Chapman’s fastball

The base speed on Chapman’s fastball is 105 MPH. Yeah, that’s right – 105. It’s too bad he doesn’t have a changeup in the game, because that kind of velocity combined with a slow pitch could seriously mess with hitters’ timing. In the meantime, though, there’s no more devastating straight fastball in the game. The pitch comes in with such speed that it actually appears to rise, a big reason that it’s so hard to hit.

No problem, even 2K pitchers can hit it.

It'd work even better if his slider was like 84 MPH. You swing, wait 10 seconds, and then the ball comes in . Ridiculous.
