2022 Rewind: Top Exit Velocities


PBR Louisiana Staff

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

All of the data for the following exit velocity leaderboard comes from our TrackMan unit and is based on the information gathered from PBR Louisiana events such as, Preseason ID's, PBR Future Games, summer open events, Invite-Only events and our Scout Days.

Kicking off our rewind of our 2022 leaderboards, we are taking a look at the top-10 exit velocities in each class from 2022.

 

WHAT IS EXIT VELOCITY?

Exit Speed: Also according to TrackMan’s own website: “The speed of the ball, measured in miles per hour, as it comes off the bat at the moment of contact.”
