Lopez near 130 mph today--NO SPOILERS Posted on August 24, 2017 at 05:21:33 PM by jsolo
I thought I saw one backhand that he threw at 208 kph (129mph). But I know he threw at least 3 backhands at over 205 (127mph) and probably 5 or 6 more at 200 or over (124). and a lot at over 190 (118). Etcheto didn't touch 190 once that I saw. No disrespect to him, he made some spectacular catches. Also, it seems that at 205 or over, even if the back man is set and his fundamentals are correct, it is still difficult to catch (sort of like a baseball pitcher at over 100 mph).
Interesting that Lopez' backhands were about 10-20 mph faster than his most viciously thrown forehands.
