Jeffress wows the crowd
John Steinmiller of the Milwaukee Brewers was down in Arizona and caught the performance of Jeremy Jeffress at the Rising Stars (aka Arizona Fall League All-Star) Game on Saturday.
The crowd rose to its feet and cheered his final pitch of the inning to strike out Brandon Laird that read 101 mph on the stadium scoreboard. Earlier in the at bat, the scoreboard read 99 and “00” for 100.
“I don’t know if I had ever received an ovation like that,” said Jeffress. “The home run was a bigger deal than me hitting 100 tonight. That won us the game which is the most important thing. I was just trying to get the outs, hit my spots and I really let it go. I guess it’s the All-Star game and everyone is watching, so why not?”
Jeffress pitched one inning, struck out two, walked one and allowed one hit.
Yep. Why not? Awesome!
