Jason Heyward Unleashed a Ridiculous 98.9mph Throw to Nail a Runner at the Plate

Chicago Cubs News

Jason Heyward might be going through plenty of ups and downs at the plate this year, but his defense has been juuuuuuuust fine:


That’s a two-out ball that died a bit in the outfield, with a runner going at second base. In no universe should that even be a close play at the plate, let alone what it was. Heyward nailed James Loney, and did it with some room to spare.

Just silly. Probably better even than the throw he made against the Pirates that didn’t result in an out, but did result in my jaw dropping.
