We’ve established that Aaron Hicks is the one of the best pro-athlete golfers around with a handicap index that's been as low as 0.9. But now, he’s also on the books as having the fastest throw from the outfield ever recorded.

As you can see, Hicks threw a baseball 105.5 MPH. That would be a pretty fast swing speed!
As a kid growing up in Southern California, Hicks wanted to follow in Tiger Woods’ footsteps. His dad even preferred he pursue golf instead of baseball, but eventually the latter won out. Having an arm like that certainly didn’t hurt.
