I used to think of myself as a sports fan first. Always immersed in the game, and even more so now as a writer, maybe perspective has taken over.
Aroldis Chapman’s arrival in Chicago brought with him his decorated 100-mph and counting fastball. In 2014 he threw 395 100-mph pitches, with Kelvin Herrera of the Kansas City Royals coming in second with 57. In 2015 he doused batters with 452 pitches of 100-mph or more. As Chapman has likely played his final game as a Chicago Cub, we examine his 8-Out save during Game 5 of World Series, which might be Cubs most vital moment ever.
