Shohei Otani Hits 101 MPH, Ties Japanese Record

Throwing heat.

Nippon-Ham Fighters right-hander Shohei Otani is opening all kinds of eyes with his ridiculous fastball. According to Baseball America, Otani set a record for a Japanese pitcher in a regular season game - and tied the Nippon Professional Baseball record - by hitting 101 MPH on the radar gun. Keep your eye on Otani: he's only 20 years old and could be an MLB stud one day.

Those who love watching Aroldis Chapman should get ready for Shohei Otani.
