A whole lot of college pitchers top out in the mid 80s.

Yeah and the ones who can through 90+ before 20 are often going pro early to get the increased bonus money and year round coaching that college doesn't offer.

He regularly hit 90-91 on our gun. Since PitchFx came about in 2007, Buehrle’s average fastball velocity was 87.1, 87.2, 86.5, 86.5, 86.4, 85.8, 84.9, 84.5, 83.9.

Our gun was fast on post-surgery John Danks fastballs as well, by about 2 or 3 mph.
