The word on Ryan Perez coming in at 90 mph from Eric Olson, by way of WRALSportsFan.com and the Associated Press:

Ryan Perez, the 20-year-old from tiny Judson University in Illinois, is one of baseball’s rare ambidextrous pitchers. He’s been all the rage in the prestigious Cape Cod League since he touched the low 90s on the radar gun — with both arms — in last week’s All-Star game.

He came on in the third inning and struck out the first batter left-handed, the second right-handed and the third left-handed.

“Didn’t see that coming,” Perez said.

Neither did the announcers on the regional telecast, fans in the stands and even some of his teammates who were doing double-takes in the field as he flipped his custom-made, six-fingered glove from one hand to the other. The 18-pitch performance earned him the West team’s MVP and left all to ask themselves, “Did he really just do that?”
