Video of OC Coyotes player throwing blazing pitch attracts online attention

A video of a Okanagan College Coyote pitcher is gaining Twitter traction after the player managed to throw a 94 mile-per-hour fastball during a pitching practice in early January.

The video of 23 year-old Trevor Brigden launching a fastball down the lane at 94 mph –– approximately 151 km/h –– was taken on Jan. 13 and has garnered over 36,000 views on Twitter.

“Trevor Brigden topping 94mph, sitting 91 [mph] consistently,” Jared Johnson, OC Coyotes assistant baseball coach, captioned the Twitter post.

“Lots of guys getting PR’s and some not getting what they want. All comes down to how hard you work over the off season,” added Johnson, who was curious to see improvements in the coming weeks.

Brigden’s pitch was shared amongst videos of other OC pitchers, Wyatt Hummel and Nick Lee.

C.J. Wilson, a former pitcher for multiple several Major League Baseball teams, also commented on the video of Brigden, noting the pitcher’s notable hairstyle.

“Who cares about mechanics when you have big league hair,” Wilson wrote.
