Throw 100 mph Ball for One Million Dollars

Think you can throw a fastball? A really, really fastball. In the spirit of the movie Million Dollar Arm, which hits theaters May 16th and follows a sports agent who travels to India to try to find the next great Major League Baseball player, Disney is holding the Million Dollar Arm Pitching Contest on April 25th. U.S. residents 18 and older compete in pitching rounds at either Disney World in Orlando, Florida (April 25th), Disneyland in Anaheim, California (April 25th), or at the Tribeca Family Festival in New York City (April 26th). The three fastest-throwing contestants from each location win tickets to the movie's Hollywood premiere and on the premiere night try to throw a 100 mph strike for $1 million. Get more information about the contest at

Think it's easy: The fastest pitch ever recorded was 105.1 mph by a MLB relief pitcher.
