What's Faster? An Anthony Nash Penalty Or A Baseball Pitch?

What's Faster? An Anthony Nash Penalty Or A Baseball Pitch?
By Mark Farrelly Updated

The Irish Times have published a graph comparing the speed of an Anthony Nash penalty compared to that of a baseball pitcher or a fast bowler in cricket.

While much has been made of Nash's penalties and the distance he makes  in the run-up, I'm surprised at how close the results of this study are. Not taking away from the fact that a 93mph sliotar flying at you from 13 metres out sounds terrifying, but the idea that a baseball pitcher can throw a ball at such speed is insane.

I'd also like to see the speed of me running for the hills when facing down a Nash penalty also measured.
