Making his third start of the season after injury, Kwick starter Michael Kopech threw one of the fastest pitches in recorded history hitting 105 MPH on both the stadium gun and a scout from the EL. “It’s not like he just rears back and doesn’t know where it’s going,” beamed NM GM Anthony Peburn. “The kid was SITTING at 98 all night. He threw a few 101’s. But 105, damn.”
The Blazers, who are as usual competing for a BDBL title have already turned down an offer for Kopech. “S-T-U-D,” said Peburn. “105 needs a hefty return. This kid could pitch in our pen next year, but we want to develop him as a starter. It’s tempting to rush him, but developing his secondary stuff a little more makes him a TOR starter.”
The future is bright with Kopech.
