L.A. Dodgers
star Yasiel Puig has something in common with one of the fastest pitchers ever -- they both reach speeds of 110 miles per hour.  The only difference ... the pitcher gets in the Hall of Fame and Puig gets arrested.

Yasiel was pulled over this morning in Collier County, Florida.  Cops say they clocked him at 110 in a 70 MPH zone.  He was arrested for reckless driving and taken to the local jail.

This is Puig's second arrest this year for the same offense.  He was arrested in April for going twice the speed limit.
