Brecht throws just as hard as Burns, topping out at 102 mph in a preseason intra-squad game this spring. He’s an elite athlete for a pitcher at 6-foot-4, 235 pounds, and he only decided to play baseball full-time last year. Before that, he moonlighted as a wide receiver on the Hawkeyes football team. First-round pitching prospect by day, playing in Brian Ferentz’s offense by night — Brecht must hate scoring more than any man alive.

That bold part is hilarious.
