The Next Zumaya

Joel Zumaya, the 22 year old flame thrower for the Tigers hit 103 mph on the radar gun against the Yankees last week- and it might not have been the most impressive pitch thrown at Comerica Park this year.

The Tigers have one of those radar guns set up outside the stadium, where fans can crap out their shoulder for the next 6 months while trying to hit 70 on the gun. So one afternoon, two brothers (ages 17 and 15) strolled up to the cage. The 17 year old proceeded to uncork a 95 mph pitch, stunning everyone around. Still in disbelief from that display, people were even more shocked when his 15 year old brother stepped up and zipped one in at 97.

The strangest thing about the whole situation is that the kids said they didn't even play baseball, they just used to whip the ball at each other in the backyard. The other thing is no one even knows who they are. My suggestion would be that someone find out.

Here is the original article from the Star Ledger:
