Maximum velocity

Norm Scheiber has an intersting piece in Slate about why MLB pitchers don't seem to be throwing any harder relative to those pitching 50 years ago. Physical feats in other sports have seen significant improvement in that time (sprinting, swimming, etc), but no one seems to be able to throw a baseball over 100 mph.

Scheiber fails to answer the burning question I always had as a little leaguer: Who cares how much harder they're pitching, why are they throwing it at me?
