On August 5, PBR VA/DC Staff held its Unsigned Senior Games at Liberty University in Lynchburg, featuring some of the best talent from all corners of the Commonwealth. In this post-event analysis we go inside the Trackman data from the on field BP and live outings by pitchers during the event and break down the leaders in some key categories.

Top Fastball Spin Rate

The average spin rate on a Major League fastball is 2250-2350 RPMs. MLB fastballs with high spin tend to be thrown up in the zone because they appear to rise to hitters, causing the hitter to swing under them. Heavy sink fastballs have spin rates below 1800 and are thrown down in the zone to take advantage of that.
