Aroldis Chapman Throws Ball Through the Backstop Behind Home Plate
Chances are the ball happened to hit the screen just right or on a weak spot, but that’s still fun to see. We have seen Aroldis Chapman blow up radar guns many times before (see this pitch and this pitch), but throwing a ball through the screen is a feat that is rarely accomplished. This particular pitch was clocked at a measly 99mph but still managed to make its way through. Lucky for the Reds, no fans were sitting directly behind the screen. I’m no lawyer, but that seems like it would be a slam dunk of a lawsuit.
