St. Rita's Matt Verdun

At 5-foot-8 and 150 pounds, St. Rita pitcher Matt Verdun isn't the most imposing figure around.

His blazing fastball, however, is plenty intimidating.

Just ask Blake Soria.

"Matt's the hardest throwing kid on our team," said Soria, the Mustangs' senior catcher. "I won't be surprised to see him throw 90 at some point during the season. He's already throwing in the upper 80s."
