As baseball fans, nothing fires us up more than a pitcher who can throw the ball at a ridiculously high speed.
Why do you think we all went crazy over Stephen Strasburg (pictured)? I don't know about you, but my money's on the fact that he struck out 195 hitters in 109 innings during his final season at San Diego State University. If those numbers don't scream high velocity, I don't know what does.
Sure enough, Strasburg isn't the only fireballer us fans have come to know and love over the years. Who can forget the electrifying nature of Nolan Ryan's "Ryan Express," or Randy Johnson's intimidating height that only made his fastball even scarier?
Thus, as the weather turns warmer and baseball season begins, let's take a look at some of the biggest MLB flamethrowers of all time.
