As we finally near the end of another year, we wanted to take a look back at some of the top performances of the year that was 2020. So we give to you our PBR Virginia/DC Leaderboard. For these players to qualify, they had to be at a PBR Virginia/DC affiliated event (Including Team PBR, PBR Future Games, Scout Days, and Mid-Atlantic Procase).

In this installment we take a look at the top average rotational acceleration of 2020. All scores from this are tracked via Blast Baseball. 

Blast Baseball gives you a quick definition of Rotational Acceleration

Our average score is based on a small sample size of swings (10-20). For better and more accurate results, you would want to get more swings on record.

(Note: These are the rotational acceleration scores players achieved at an event in Virginia. Some players may have improved their numbers at another state event or tournament. Click on the player to see their profile and learn more about each.
