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 Max Peak Hand Speed of 2020. All numbers recorded were via Blast Baseball. (Note, some metrics are still being implemented into Player profiles so there is a chance that a player could be missing)
