From everywhere, who is the slowest MLB pitcher? 1. Johnson (pictured during his time with the Baltimore Orioles) is the current holder of the slowest pitch in baseball -- if you want to count him. Johnson has appeared in just three games this season. However, his low velocity falls in line with his career numbers (65.6 MPH last season).

How fast is 60 mph from 46 feet?

To compare the "ball travel time" of any two distances, divide the longer distance by the shorter distance and multiply the result by the mph. For example, 60' divided by 46' equals 1.30. Multiply 1.30 times 70 mph, and you have 91.
