The fastball is the most-thrown pitch at any level of baseball, hands down. Whether a four-seam or two, the old #1 is often the go-to pitch in critical situations. A four-seamer is the straight heat. The two-seam fastball will sacrifice velocity for movement proportional to the arm with which it’s thrown (a right-hander’s two-seamer will move to the right). Let’s take a closer look at this classic pitch and you decide which Brewer’s pitcher has the best fastball.

Zach Baun #56 Outside Linebacker for the Wisconsin Badgers Where We Are Currently. After a loss in the NFC championship game, the Packers roster is still sitting pretty. There’s a lot of young talent under contract, but every year teams have to deal with roster turnover. The top three positions Brian Gutekunst will need to fill are wide receiver, offensive line, and inside linebacker. This draft is stacked with talented wide receivers, and…

Wisconsin Badgers have always been known for two things: making big big burly men on the offensive line, and producing well-rounded running backs to run behind those monstrous men. Since they pick at 30, the Packers 1st round pick could be a running back. Why Consider Jonathan Taylor?
