142 pitchers 90 mph or better in Jupiter Final total and new record!
Perfect Game Staff        
Published: Friday, November 01, 2002

Last year, 2001, the Perfect Game/Baseball America World Championship in Jupiter Florida had over 90 pitchers who touched 90 mph or better. That was the unofficial record of most 90 mph pitchers at any one event. The record lasted exactly one year as the 2002 tournament in Jupiter produced 142 pitchers who touched 90 mph or better. The pitchers listed below are from 30 different states plus Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Florida led the way with 32 pitchers who touched 90 or better. Texas had 26 pitchers and California 14. Georgia has 11 pitchers on the list. Alabama. Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Louisiana, Wisconsin, Puerto Rico and the Dominican all have three or more on the list. Several other states had two pitchers on the 90+ list. 87 pitchers were clocked at 91 mph or better. The break down is as follows. One pitcher, Jared Hughes was clocked at 96 mph, two were gunned at 95 mph, 7 hit 94 mph, 5 touched 93 mph, 20 at 92 mph, 44 at 91 mph and 54 pitchers were gunned at 90 mph. Listed below are the pitchers who threw 90 or better at Jupiter. Several others who are not listed, we have seen throw 90 or better, but for whatever reason they did not touch 90 in Jupiter. A few others did not pitch in Jupiter, for example, Chris Worster (Yellow Jackets) threw 93 several times a few weeks earlier at the qualifier in Ft Myers. Worster did play and was a key hitter for the third place Yellow Jackets. There were another 100 or more pitchers in Jupiter that topped out between 86-89. The new record may stand for quite awhile, but that's what we thought last year.

Please Note: We have heard from college coaches regarding pitchers they got at 90 or better. Please understand that the pitchers listed are all based on our scouts radar readings. It is possible that others may have thrown 90 or better on other guns, but we can only report what we see with our own eyes. Most all our scouts use Stalkers, but we do use a few Jugs as well. We have found the Jugs sometimes reads the same, sometimes a little, (1-2 mph) higher. The highest readings were all confirmed with the Stalker gun. Remember, we are not necessarily claiming that this list contains all the top pitching prospects. We realize there is much more than velocity involved in making a pitcher a top prospect. We know of several pitchers, who did not touch 90 in Jupiter, that are top pitching prospects. Note: If anyone is aware of a pitcher we missed on this list please contact us and we will be happy to check our charts again. Phone: 319-298-2923 or email pgjerry@qwest.net
