Washington’s best pitch is his fastball, at 97-99 mph with some life. And he’s not merely a hard thrower; the Virginian has two above-average offerings to keep hitters off his plus-plus heater. His changeup offers excellent deception from in both velocity differential (typically 20 mph less than the heater) and his ability to keep that difference without sacrificing arm speed. His curveball flashes plus with hard spin and depth. Fun fact: he has wooden teeth.

Getting to Know Keith

Keith Thomson is a mixed-media artist whose art is packed with wit, humor, and ingenuity. He began his artistic career as a political cartoonist in the 90’s, a background that is reflected in the sharp storytelling of his artwork. His portfolio relishes in the escapism offered by art; each painting, though realistic in style, presents a scenario with a surreal and, at times, ironic twist. To begin a work, he sketches out his idea using an animation software. Then, he transfers the sketch onto the canvas and finally starts to layer oil paint. In addition to painting, he writes spy novels and nonfiction articles.
