Brett Phillips Puts Everything Into This 104.7 MPH Rocket to the Plate … But No One Was Tagging

Incredible Plays

Yesterday, we took a look at Jackie Bradley Jr.’s impressive 96 MPH throw from center field to second base to nail a greedy Pedro Alvarez, but somehow that all seems so quaint now.


And that’s probably because yesterday the Brewers’ center fielder, Brett Phillips, unleashed a massive 104.7 MPH ROCKET from center field to home plate (ish).

Of course, no one was actually running home/tagging up, but, you know, he still did it …

To be fair to JBJ, Phillips’ throw wasn’t quite on the line, he didn’t have to play it off the wall, and he didn’t actually record any outs, but … damn, that’s some serious velocity.

Although, I suppose if you’re going to leave your feet and put all your weight into a throw when no one’s actually tagging up, you better unleash hell. And that’s just what he did.


104.7 MPH – Wow.
