Random Dude Throws 96 MPH Baseball & Gets Signed With The Oakland A's!

Nathan Patterson played baseball in high school, but figured he wasn't good enough to make it to the pros, so he stopped. He figured wrong: After he threw 96 miles per hour in a pitching booth at Coors Field in Colorado last month, the Oakland A's took notice of Patterson's prowess and signed him to a contract. MLB.com reports that the 23-year-old actually started getting back into the sport after hitting 96 on the radar gun at a minor-league Nashville Sounds game last year, a feat that surprised him because he hadn't thrown a baseball "for a few years before that." So he started training, a process that was halted for a bit when he got hit by a car and had surgery on his non-throwing wrist.
