Incredible college pitcher!!
The University of Tennessee pitcher Ben Joyce recorded a 105.5 mph fastball in the game against Auburn on May 1. It was the fastest in college baseball history. In the eighth inning, Joyce broke his own record, which was 104 mph he threw in March against South Carolina. The velocity was almost the same speed as the MLB record of 105.8 mph Aroldis Chapman had in 2010. So, the young right-hander was surprisingly the second-fastest pitcher behind Chapman in baseball history at any level. He allowed only one hit with six strikeouts in four frames in the game. Joyce is now 2-1 with 38 strikeouts and a 1.71 ERA in 21 innings pitched. (MLB No.173 KAISPO No.1181)
