Bard blazing his trail

Thursday, March 19, 2009

There is a magic to triple digits. It's unimaginable territory to most major league pitchers, and hitting it with any regularity brings the eyes immediately to the radar gun. But to Daniel Bard, hitting 100 miles per hour with a pitch has lost a bit of its allure. It is, after all, not exactly a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence for him. Bard has hit 100 in college, the first time in his junior year at the University of North Carolina. (Boston Globe)
