Video Of Pirates Luis 'The Horse' Heredia


If you are a fan of teenaged Pirates baseball pitchers and what Pirates fan isn’t these days, this video of Luis Heredia could get you more excited than anything happening at Pirates City today.  Unreal.  No wonder Rene Gayo stalked the kid for years. 

You will see a bat boy in the video at the end.  I trust Gayo has his eye on him.  It appears that he has some good feet.

Damn, we could watch this video at least eight times.  Wait.  We just did.

We saw this posted at Bucs Dugout by taiwania.   You see the Horse, number 25, working smoother than warm butter on the mound. Converting the Spanish to English in this You Tube video doesn’t exactly translate perfectly, but it shows the excitement a fan must have after watching him pitch.

The title is: HORSE AND 93 MPH STRAIGHT

The description is:

At present the line of “horse” Heredia is the m? S famous Mexican baseball. Observe the change is 83 mph, which is the right of many professional pitchers. And his fastball … so nom? S of 93 mph

The first comment from an obvious Luis Heredia fan:

    I feel sorry for the batter; ball was in catcher’s mitt before he started to swing !

    I live in Mexico… thought I’d translate the description:

    “Right now Heredia’s fastball is the most famous in all of Mexican Baseball. Note the 83 mph change up, which is as fast as most pro pitchers’ fastball. And his fastball…. well it’s ‘just’ 93 MPH

    Caballito is a nickname that means ‘little horse’
