Nathan Patterson, 23, attended a Colorado Rockies game with his brother in July, and his pitch went viral on Twitter.
He threw a pitch that clocked in at 96 miles per hour during a stadium speed challenge. Two weeks later, he was signed to the Oakland A’s – which is our own Las Vegas Aviators Major League affiliate.
Nathan posted Instagram photos of himself signing a contract with the Oakland A’s. “For those who tell you that you can’t achieve your dreams, use that as fuel to work even harder,” he wrote in the caption. “Because those people are the ones that settle.
Don’t know if he’ll go right to “the show” or not, but the A’s have him at their practice facility as we speak!
