15-Year-Old Fastball Reached 144kph

I am not a professional scout, but when a 15-year-old secondary school pitcher is throwing 144kph (90mph), it is hard not to make a big deal about it.

Meet Lee Chen-Hsun from Hsin Ming Junior High School. At the age of 15, Lee stands 191 cm and weighs 68 kg. For my American readers, that’s roughly 6’2 and 150 lb.

On April 15, during a semi-final game in the junior high baseball tournament, Lee was constantly throwing fastball above 140kph.

Even until the sixth inning, Lee Chen-Hsun was still able to hit 144kph on the gun. He was charged with a loss after he gave up four runs. However, he also managed to strike out seven across six innings of work.
