Max Scherzer is the most intimidating pitcher in baseball.

The Washington Nationals ace brings a fiery presence to the mound along with some downright filthy stuff.

And how does Scherzer, a three-time Cy Young award winner, fuel up for his intense outings?

A gigantic roast beef and Swiss cheese sandwich. Seriously.

"I need to eat a large meal before I play, and the one thing that was kind of consistent in every single clubhouse at least in the minors was a roast beef sandwich," Scherzer told the New York Post of how he developed the strange pre-game ritual.

"So that kind of stuck there, and it just kind of stuck in the big leagues as well."
