12 Year-Old Girl Dials it Up to 72 MPH (!) During the Junior Baseball Tournament in Japan!

Interesting

Meet Nao Kurakata. 

She’s the 12-year-old girl pitching in Japan’s Junior Baseball Tournament and lighting up the radar guns at the Sapporo Dome. Watch as she carves through an all-boy lineup, routinely sitting around 113 km/h (70 MPH) and touching as high as 116 km/h (72 MPH) according to their radar gun.

Absolutely unbelievable. 

We’ll be following her career with a very close eye.
