Yordano “Ace” Ventura Tribute

Kansas City lost their #1 pitcher on Sunday the 22nd of January to a car crash in his home country of the Dominican Republic. Yordano Ventura will always be a fond memory in the hearts of Kansas Citians due to his infectious smile and fun and exuberant personality. Not to mention, his very fast fastball. Yordano’s fastball was consistently in the upper 90s, with a max speed of 102mph in a game against the Cleveland Indians in 2013. The pitch was the fastest pitch thrown by a starter in the regular season since 2008. Ventura brought fire with his fastball and also with his competitive attitude. Yordano will always be remembered and will always be forever royal.
