Arizona Summer Review: Spin Leaders

Trackman Pitching

This summer, Prep Baseball Report events across the country have been powered by TrackMan’s industry-leading Portable system to capture pinpoint accurate, actionable data from player performances. Prep Baseball Report and TrackMan are dedicated to recognizing talent and unleashing their potential.

At the Arizona Summer Review that took place this past Sunday, all pitchers had a chance to throw a bullpen while being monitored through our portable Trackman unit. Each player threw all their pitches where we were able to collect key ball flight metrics such as release velocity, spin rate, vertical & horizontal movement and much more. PBR was able to collect data on many uncommitted players around the state that will be sharable with coaches & scouts as well as help players identify areas of development for the future.

Our Summer Review had over 20 players workout on the Trackman system in their bullpens. Here are the leaders from the event in fastball & breaking ball spin rates:
