The best pitcher on Planet Earth right now is from our town. Max Scherzer is throwing a baseball better than anybody in the world. He's the pride of Parkway Central. He was a standout there, but nobody anticipated this: Scherzer leads the American League in wins and whip, and is second in strikeouts. He is the winningest pitcher in baseball in the last two years.

Of all the people who have ever thrown a baseball from West County, Max Scherzer from Parkway Central may throw it the hardest. He has hit 99 on the radar gun consistently since his sophomore year at Mizzou.
