2022 Rewind: Top Average Fastball Spin Rates


Colin Chamblin
Manager, Deep South Operations

As we are beginning to wrap up 2022 and gear up for the 2023 Preseason, our PBR Tennessee Staff has decided to gather all the numbers and data from our successful event schedule in 2022. With this being our first leaderboard from the year, we will break all of our numbers down and have leaderboards for all statistical categories.

All of the data for the following top average fastball spin rates leaderboard comes from our TrackMan unit and is based on the information gathered from PBR Tennessee events such as, Preseason ID's, Preseason All-State, Rising Stars, summer open events, Invite-Only events and our Scout Days.

Continuing our rewind of our 2022 leaderboards, we are taking a look at the top fastball spin rates from 2022.

WHAT IS SPIN RATE?

Spin Rate: This metric calculates the rate of spin on the baseball as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, measured in revolutions per minute (rpm). Historical data shows that high-spin fastballs lessen the impact of gravity, allowing for more ‘rise’ (or less fall, in other words) as it carries through the zone. Low-spin fastballs typically indicate the pitch has greater horizontal action, often making it tougher to square up, but generally easier to make contact with, leading to more ground balls, while high-spin fastballs show a correlation with swings and misses.
