For those bored without softball, if you go to the 45:00 mark you'll get to see Mike White pitching. I'm guessing he was in his early 20's at this point. You can tell it's 1984 by the uniforms, lack of batting helmets, the bats being used, etc. And, on top of the announcers being amateurish, and humorous, the color commentary guy is actually an American who moved to NZ and thinks of himself as a Kiwi, his bias in his commentary is legendary for the games that were on TV down there. It's hard to tell on video how hard these guys are throwing but, my guess would be 80mph range... 46 feet away.
