High school kid throws straight gas at White Sox game

You know that feeling when you wanna prove that you still can throw gas? Well, be prepared to be put to shame by a high school kid.

On Saturday, Lincoln Way Central baseball player Ryan Vice lit up the radar gun at Guaranteed Rate Field: 

Yes, you read that correctly. He hit 97. 

We're not saying he's the next Reynaldo Lopez or Michael Kopech, but that's got to be the fastest pitch ever recorded on the concourse. 

Vice is committed to Western Michigan, according to his Twitter bio. Don't be surprised to see him playing in the majors someday, though.

The legend of Nicky Delmonico grows every night. 

On Friday, the White Sox rookie produced his second career multi-homer game in extraordinary fashion.

The first of his two bombs was just a good, old-school mash to right field: 

The second, however, conflated muscle and hustle: 

What can't this guy do? 

The pair of homers boosted his total to five in just 15 games. May want to save voters the time and just induct him into baseball's Hall of Fame now.
