He's about 12 feet up the line but here is Bradley putting the ball over the 20 ft wall in center. He has one of the strongest arms in baseball.
As a Red Sox fan I’ve seen Bradley make some incredible throws. But he throws 103 from the outfield. The poster alleges his 15yo son throws 109 assuming he can stand at home and throw it over the CF fence.
Since the advent of Statcast the highest recoded MLB outfield throw is 105.5 by Aaron Hicks.
If the poster wants help from the board he’s going to have to deal in reality. Saying he throws 87 from the outfield and can throw it over the CF fence doesn’t correlate.
His stated Of velocity and mound velocity correlate. At his age hitting 85 on the mound he’s probably a genuine D1 pitching prospect. Unless he’s hitting bombs a 7.7 sixty doesn’t work for a position player. Keep in mind the poster said he’s already bigger than dad. Unless mom is 5’7”/5’8” the kid is probably done or close to done growing.
Agreed. I was using it to say that one of the strongest arms in all of baseball can barely do it.
