Lots of records are set annually in the MLB. Though there’s one record that’s pretty hard to beat and that’s the fastest pitch. So, we gathered a list of the fastest pitches that have ever been recorded in MLB history. Let’s take a look at this ranking to see the obvious and maybe less memorable record setters!
Topping the list, we have Lynn Nolan Ryan Jr. He pitched 108.1 mph in 1974. No wonder people called him The Ryan Express! Well, now that speed train serves as an executive advisor to the Houston Astros’s owner.
