Aroldis Chapman’s day in court

Fresh off a one-out save that many feel was a waste, Cincinnati Reds reliever Aroldis Chapman will be appearing in court today regarding his speeding charge from last May.

Chapman was charged with going 93 miles-per hour in a 65 miles-per-hour area on Interstate 71.

Chapman, who holds the current record for the fastest pitch speed in Major League Baseball at 105.1 mph, is scheduled to appear at 1 p.m. before Magistrate Donald Breckenridge in Grove City Mayor’s Court, a court employee said this morning.

The original hearing date, scheduled for June 6, was postponed until today from a request from Chapman’s lawyer. Considering his suspended license, hopefully, Chapman is driven to the hearing.
