Dayton Dragons pitcher Hunter Greene topped 100 miles per hour on his first seven pitches in the Futures Game on Sunday at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.
However, another Cincinnati Reds prospect, Taylor Trammell, overshadowed Greene by winning the Larry Doby Award, which goes to the game’s MVP. He’s the first Reds prospect to win the honor.
Greene and Trammell played for the United States team, which beat the World team 10-6.
Greene pitched 1 1/3 innings for the United States team, allowing one run on two hits with one walk and a strikeout. His fastest pitch reached 103.1 miles per hour.
White Sox prospect Luis Alexander Basabe, the first batter Greene faced, hit a home run.
