My chat with ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick includes his memorable career moments, current thoughts on sports journalism, and advice for today’s aspiring writers.
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.
