Average FB Spin Rate Leaderboard: 2023 Summer Events

Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

Our 2023 slate of summer events in Louisiana came to a close last week.  We ran a total of four open high school events in Lake Charles, Monroe, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans, as well as our invite-only Top Prospect Games event at the University of Louisiana in Lafayette, LA.  In addition to these events, we also ran a couple of our Rising Stars Events for prospects in the 2027 and 2028 classes, which helped served as an identifier for our Junior Future Games teams.  Over the course of the next couple of weeks, we are going to take a look at some of the top performers from the summer, across different statistical categories.  Today, we take a look at this summer's Top 5 leaderboard for Average Fastball Spin Rate.
