Who's the most amazing athlete you've ever seen in person?
We're talking like Kofax level great.
They used to let you get right over the visitors bullpen in Camden Yards and also just behind the bullpen catcher. Troy Percival threw HARD butdidn't throw a cutter in the conventional Andy Pettitte sense... He threw a 95mph slider for strikes. You could see the crazy movement looking over his shoulder--it was like he was throwing a wiffleball but at 95. To quote Buck Showalter "I'll sit here in the dugout, tell you what he'll throw, where it'll be, and how hard he's going to throw it and you still won't be able to hit it." that was literally a different league from anyone else.
I was also there for his last blown save at the stadium. (he didn't have many but that was an event)
More men have walked on the moon than scored a postseason ER against Mariano Rivera.
