Kaepernick blew the pitch by Giants closer Sergio Romo, who sat behind the plate to catch the pitch but clearly wasn't prepared for a pitch that fast. Kaepernick's pitch was clocked at 87 miles per hour - not too shabby, even by major league standards. Kap's first pitch clocked at 87mph. #Niners365 pic.twitter.com/2WbA1DKFaq— San Francisco 49ers (@49ers) June 22, 2013 According to Yahoo! Sports, Kaepernick was drafted by the Chicago Cubs back in 2009. However, Kaepernick chose to pursue football instead, and that decision seems to be working out pretty well so far. Video via MLB.
