How fast is the fastest fastball every thrown? Who threw it? Some of you reading know the answer to that. There’s an amazing documentary, I would recommend, if you are interested in finding out the answer: Fastball. Fastball takes us through the time periods of fast pitchers. The interesting thing to me is not in who was pitching the fastest, but how they measured the speed in the last 100 years. It reminds me of how early we really are in tracking data. In the early 1900s, there was no way of actually knowing who the fastest pitchers were. Batters just had to generally say “They pitched hard.”
Great post & so true Adam, the industry and a few new emerging ones like the metaverse, economic stability, healthcare, still need a true north metric - or an updated one.
