In case you haven’t had enough of baseball’s new sensation, here’s an interesting tidbit from John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Apparently, Chapman has vanity plates on his vehicles. Specifically, “102MPH” on his Lamborghini and “101MPH” on his Mercedes.
Now that the Cuban fireballer has reached 102.7 MPH and 103.9 MPH in his first two major league appearances, he’s ready to make some changes.
“I just texted his advisor,” Louisville trainer Tomas Vera said. “He’s going to see if he can get 104MPH and 105MPH.”
If 32 percent of Reds fans can be believed, he might need to reserve 106MPH, too.
