Sidd Finch once threw a baseball so hard, he struck a guy out with one pitch

Sidd Finch. What an icon. Gave it all up to play French Horn. Randy Johnson said he envied Finch’s courage to do what he loved without caring about the money. “I loved the xylophone, but gave it up. Finch is the man”, said Johnson.

I'm old enough to remember when the article on Sid came out in the American Medical Journal. Apparently both his elbow and shoulder in both arms and been dislocated due to the training for years at the monastery while the surrounding cartilage was extremely strong. This allowed him to throw a baseball with his right arm essentially unattached in two places creating a type of human whip while the strong cartilage kept his arm from flying apart. At least that was the theory. Its a shame he gave up baseball to go back to meditation. We'll never know what career he would have had as a pitcher.

I remember this whole story. There was a large tent put up in Shea Stadium and they had a pitching machine in there shooting balls against something so it sounded like Sid was warming up, but no one ever saw him. One of the backup catchers, I don’t remember who, said he had to have a specially made glove to catch Sidd’s pitches.

Sid played in the same league as me. He was clearly known before I faced him. I started my swing and the ball was already there and hit the butt of my bat so hard, if it had stayed fair it would have been a home run.

I heard Darrel Strawberry once hit a 700ft HR in spring training off of Finch. He closed his eyes and swung. Made good contact.

His curveball was clocked at 168. His fastball was clocked at 198. It is said that a sonic boom was heard every time He threw the fastball thus letting hitters know what pitch was coming.

Bruh my history teacher loved Sidd Finch, he would hype him up all the time in class. He didn't know Sidd's secret either, which was the best part, the passion in this dudes eyes talking about this legend made it even more hilarious after all was said and done lmao.

I used to play some basketball with Sidd Finch; he was great at that too. He said the monks had taught him that "inner strength will lead to great awareness of the joy of the shot". He never missed, never. He was Stephon Curry before Stephon Curry; he was Larry Bird in a meditative state. We just played that one time.

This is hysterical. I'm a die hard Mets fan and Ive never knew the full story. Now I want a throw back Jersey with Finch on the back. This is definitely something Mets would do. Great video thanks.

Physically impossible to throw a baseball that fast, but you still peaked my interests and got me on the April fools joke…well played

Man was an absolute monster. Darryl Strawberry somehow connected with one of his pitches during a practice and the ball took out the floodlights.

Sid Finch. Wow. My grandpa had watched him in Spring Training camp at the gates and he was absolutely amazing. What an icon.

I still have that edition of the SI !! I was 16 and was totally taken in hook line and sinker! I was sooo excited to see this “Finch” character! The article really made him out to be an incredible athlete with even more incredible eccentricities! I immediately thought at that time, ohhhh man baseball has got another “MarkFydrich” better known back in the day as the BIRD! He was the AL ROY in 76 an went 19-9 with a 2.34 ERA. If anyone even remembers him, he’s the guy who would talk to the ball and lay on his stomach an even the dirt around the mound🤣😂🤣. What a great memory
