Maddux was throwing mid to low 90's in his early years I believe.
He could hit the low 90's,but he didn't live there during his "effective" years. At his best, he was around 88 with a ton of run on his ball.
Of course it didn't hurt he got the benefit of an extra 6 inches on either side
But that's where the catchers glove was....he hit the glove = strike
