Cincinnati Pitcher Ardolis Chapman threw the fastest pitch ever on Friday night when his fastball was clocked at 105 miles per hour.
The Pitch was no fluke as each of Chapman's 25 pitches hit the radar gun at 100+ miles per hour during his relief stint against the San Diego Padres!
Since radar guns were used in baseball in the 1980, the previous fastest pitch was tossed by Detroit Tiger reliever Joel Zumaya who was clocked at 104.8 miles per hour during a playoff game in October 2006.
Breath easy Redskins fans, Albert Haynesworth says that he is not a $100 million dollar slave.
Hayensworth, talking with 106.7 The Fan in D.C. explained that he was upset with the teams switch to a 3-4 defense.
"I guess in this world we don't have a lot of people with, like, backbones," Haynesworth said. "Just because somebody pay you money don't mean they'll make you do whatever they want or whatever. I mean, does that mean everything is for sale?
"I mean, I'm not for sale. Yeah, I signed the contract and got paid a lot of money, but ... that don't mean I'm for sale or a slave or whatever."
Isn't it good to know that Albert is fighting the good fight for "millionaire slaves" everywhere?
A South Bend Radio Personality has apologized for a joke about Michigan State Head Coach Mark Dantonio following MSU's controversial win over Notre Dame. Check out the video and let me know what you think of the controversy. Is this legit outrage or not?
UPDATE – 7pm EST – One of my original two sources on this story has stated that Jerry Jones wants a longterm solution for his HC and is really working the phones about getting this done. Believe it or not, the name of Jimmy Johnson has been mentioned to me before but not until getting confirmation at dinner tonight. I now believe Johnson could actually be among one of the three former head coaches that Jones seriously wants roaming the Dallas sidelines. Who would you take – Johnson, Billick or Cowher?
I am as clueless as the next guy about this story but Kevin Lee from the web site prosportsblogging.com is all over this story. It is so odd that it is hard to believe but we grilled this guy on the show today, he seems legit. Here is the grilling.
I have a little friend here in Dallas who needs your love. His name is Ethan Hallmark and he has cancer. We hooked him up to meet the Texas Rangers last month but what he really needs is your positive energy.
I hung out with Ethan and his family and this is a class A dude, please check out his Caringbridge page and send him some good thoughts as he fights this horrid disease. The same disease who took my mother and father. I know times are tough but if you could make a donation, it would go a long way to ease the burden on his family as they battle to keep him healthy. Donations are great but not what he is looking for, he wants to live.
Even if you can't donate to his cause, a message of love would be great! Here is Ethan's story, he is 9 and loves baseball.
When I think of Ethan I think of my own kids and I hope you do too. We are so lucky that our little men are healthy as horses that we forget everybody isn't so lucky.
Keep Ethan and other sick little ones in your heart! They are battling everyday for their lives and as parents we can only marvel at their strength and love. Drop Ethan a line and let him know you got his back!
Any love you can send his way would be greatly appreciated!
