I once got fastball pitch of 150 km/h (93 mph) in the baseball game of Wii Sports. I only did it only once, all my other fastball are much slower than that usually 100 mph (62 mph).

I don't know how I was able to throw a pitch like that. I don't remember what technique did I used. I would like to know which motion or pitching mechanic I need to achieve these speeds.

The trick to ultra-fast pitches is a fast, but short movement, like flicking your wrist:

Quickly flick your wrist instead of throwing an actual pitch. This is the catch: quickly flicking your wrist will make the controller think you're making the "throw" motion a lot faster than you actually are.

Another tip compared it to trying to swat a fly - a sharp downward motion.

Thanks, it worked. – Victor Dec 19 '11 at 1:08

I've found the best method is to kinda throw a direct punch (as if boxing), which 95% of the time results in 150-153km/h fast balls.

@Texenox - It actually does – Robotnik Sep 6 '15 at 14:56
@Robotnik, sorry, was just difficult to make out without it being edited. – Texenox Sep 6 '15 at 14:57
@Texenox - The last sentence wasn't, which is why I removed it. – Robotnik Sep 6 '15 at 14:58
