The Oakland A’s signed a 23-year-old fan to a minor league contract.  He went viral when he hit 96 MPH at the speed pitch challenge during a Rockies game. 

Nathan Patterson threw several pitches in the mid-90s and touched 96 MPH multiple times.  The video helped push the A’s, who he had been trying to get to sign him since February, to sign him.

How long before the movie comes out?
