Video: Jameson Taillon’s Debut

Published:

Taillon made his debut in West Virginia on Wednesday.

Pittsburgh Pirates top prospect Jameson Taillon made his professional debut on Wednesday, pitching for the West Virginia Power against the Hagerstown Suns.  For a recap of the game, along with quotes from Taillon, West Virginia pitching coach Jeff Johnson, and Pirates’ farm director Kyle Stark, check out my story from Wednesday night.  Since I was in attendance for the start, I got video of Taillon’s debut.  This was almost one month after my video of him in Spring Training, so feel free to compare the two.

For quick reference, Taillon was throwing around 95-96 MPH in the first inning, and was around 93-94 in the second inning.  You can probably tell this by the video, but it was raining throughout the entire outing.
