Mark Buehrle and other effective soft tossers in MLB

Mark Buehrle‘s fastball velocity wouldn’t excite most high school coaches, but he’s carved out a very solid major league career. Average fastball velocity is at an all-time high, but there are a handful of guys who are getting it done with heaters that would barely break the speed limit on some roads in Texas.
