WATCH: New York Yankees’ Outfielder, Aaron Hicks, Throws A Ball 105.5 MPH To Home Plate For The Out

In case you haven’t seen or felt the breeze from this throw, New York Yankees’ outfielder, Aaron Hicks, gunned a runner out at home plate tonight by throwing the ball 105.5 MPH. This is the fastest recorded throw by MLB Statcast in baseball history. The previous high was by Houston Astros’ outfielder, Carlos Gomez, at 103.1 MPH. Not only was the velocity of this throw impressive, but it was right on the money to tag Danny Valencia out at home to save a run. While this throw did save a run, it wasn’t enough as the New York Yankees lost to the Oakland A’s, 5-2.

  1. What I would give to go back in time & have Statcast (powered by Amazon Web Services) measure the likes of Dave Parker’s arm or Roberto Clemente! Even better…get a spin rate in Nolan Ryan or The Big Unit? How bout Sandy Koufax…or the exit velocity of a ball hit by Ted Williams? Imagine the data….🤔🙄👍⚾️.
