Byron Buxton Newsbeat

Tuesday, June 16, 2015

Byron Buxton’s first MLB hit was a triple because of course it was |

According to Statcast, his speed topped out at 21.39 mph, which is A) fast enough to get you pulled over in a Massachusetts school zone and B) .41 miles faster than Billy Hamilton’s last triple, hit on May 13 against the Braves and maxing out at 20.98 mph. It’s even faster than Jarrod Dyson’s triple on May 10, which clocked in at 21.03 mph.
