Max Fastball Velocity: This metric calculates the speed of the pitch as it’s released from the pitcher’s hand.

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.

9 Justin Minaberry FL Spruce Creek 2023 RHP 16.6 in
10 Karson Lindsey FL North Marion 2023 OF 16.4 in

Induced Vertical Break: Outlined on TrackMan's own website: "Distance between the height at which the ball crosses home plate and the height at which it would have crossed if it travelled in a straight line from release and were affected by gravity, reported in inches or centimeters."

9 Bransen Angel FL Tampa Catholic 2023 RHP 14.2
10 Sebastian Granobles FL HIALEAH EDUCATIONAL ACADEMY 2023 RHP 13.8

Horizontal BreakOutlined on TrackMan’s own website: “... horizontal movement is measured in inches between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate side-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate side-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release. A positive number means the break was to the right from the pitcher’s perspective, while a negative number means the break was to the left from the pitcher’s perspective.”
