60 mph is probably about right for the average person.

When I was younger I pitched quite a bit and usually throwing about 75... one day for some reason I really was feeling it and was in the low 80's, but my arm was done after three innings. Coaches were pretty impressed the first three innings, but after tossing a couple grapefruits in the 4th, I was yanked in a hurry :lol:

I once batted against a guy who threw 90, that was like lightning, I was happy with myself just fouling one off on the way to striking out :D

Look. We can go round and round about this all the live long day. Let's keep it simple. I embody amazement. Can you dig on that? Good. Then meet me on the corner of rock and roll, and bring a flask of something that burns.

I used to play as a kid but I don’t play much anymore.It is a lot faster than you think.I throw around 75, but I’m a catcher.The fastest we have faced is 82,but normally it is between 70 to 75.The throwing speed are depends on your arms.
