Who is Justin Speier?

Justin James Speier is an American former professional baseball pitcher in Major League Baseball. He attended Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix, Arizona. Upon graduation from Brophy Prep, Speier attended the University of San Francisco where he played catcher for the Dons. He also attended Nicholls State University. Speier served in the US Marine Corps Reserves. He is the son of former major league player and coach Chris Speier.

Speier throws a four-seam fastball from an unusual angle that can reach anywhere between 89 and 94 miles per hour. His success tends to be directly proportional to his fastball velocity, because the fastball sets up his best strikeout pitch - a baffling, darting forkball, which causes great difficulty for hitters because of his unorthodox arm slot. Speier also throws a two-seamer and a slider.
