world's longest baseball throw

You'd think that people are getting bigger, stronger and better, but as far as the world's longest baseball throw goes we have to go back nearly half a century.

Glen Gorbous, a Canadian minor leaguer, who had a three year stint in the Majors from 1955 - 1957 still holds the record.

In 1957, after a running start, the ball left his arm at an estimated 120 MPH and it flew and flew and flew.

After all was said and done the baseball covered a total of 445 feet 10 inches before hitting the ground and breaking the old record by a whole nine inches.

Glen Gorbous broke Don Grate's record throw of 445 feet 1 inches set in 1956.
