New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks made history on Wednesday night when he threw gunned down Oakland's Danny Valencia at the plate with this 105.5 mph throw. The fastest in baseball history...

Per MLB.com...

The previous high registered by StatcastTM was 103.1, by the Astros' Carlos Gomez last September. The previous high on a throw from Hicks -- who reached the upper 90s as a standout pitcher in high school -- was 103.07 on Sept. 30.

The best measured arm in the history of the MLB and it's in left field? Hmmmm, for some reason I was always told the weakest of the outfield arms played left. Kudos for having an absolute cannon.
